The Settlement, Integration and Employment Supports program seeks to reach recent immigrants, newcomers, and refugees in Edmonton and bridge the gaps they have experienced to settlement and integration in the city. Our Settlement and Integration services supports newcomers to successfully transition into life in Canada.
Our Goal: To work with newcomers, community organizations and mainstream institutions to offer a holistic two way approach to address settlement and integration needs.
Our Work With Newcomers: We provide assistance to help newcomers: Learn about their community, Navigate access to mainstream and community services and resources, Develop stronger connections in their new community in Canada, connect to new networks and support groups. Services are delivered to newcomers using a model which facilitates the development of their skills and abilities to increase their capacity to seek out resources on their own, and to independently develop and pursue solutions to their needs.
Our Work With Mainstream and Community Partners: We work with local mainstream institutions and community organizations to collaboratively foster best practices for more inclusive and responsive engagement of newcomers in their services.
