If you are an economic or family class immigrant, look to us for information and pre-arrival support. We help you plan for your move, settlement and employment in Canada.
A Place You Can Call Home
Canada is a vast, diverse, welcoming and safe country with a high standard of living. It’s not surprising that immigrants will account for 30% of Canada’s population by 2036. But even if you think you are prepared, you may face many challenges and unknowns when settling in a new country. A well-balanced overview from a reliable source can improve your chances of success in Canada and prevent disappointments. We give you up-to-date and accurate information to help you thrive.
How We Help
You’ve been approved for permanent residence. Now what? From finding housing to adapting to a new culture to understanding healthcare and the job market, you have a lot to think about. We are here to prepare you for an easy transition. We give you the information you need to make sense of your new home.
What You Should Expect
You will attend a group orientation (GO) session to get information on all key aspects of living and working in Canada.
You will take part in a personalized planning session (PPS) to build an action plan with help from a trained facilitator.
You will form connections with local organizations and receive support based on your priorities, occupation and destination.
A Door to Employment
Foreign credential recognitions, lack of Canadian work experience, among other factors, can make it hard for immigrants to get quality employment.
A Canadian education can help get you back into your field faster after arrival, upgrade your existing skills, or even develop a new career. Post-secondary education institutions—colleges, universities, institutes, polytechnics and cégeps—in Canada offer many high-quality training options to support your labour market integration.
