Settlement and Integration Program- a Canadian model of settlement and integration which aims to enable newcomers such as newly arrived immigrants, refugees, new Canadians, and live-in caregivers to adapt, settle and integrate into Canadian society socially, economically as quickly and comfortably as possible. Services include newcomer’s orientation and information, form filling assistance, assisted access to services and social support that focus on cross-cultural interpretation, family adjustment issues, settlement counseling (Guided Pathway), life skills workshops, and community connections that connect newcomers with community events, services, and institutions.

The Settlements Services Program helps newcomers get started in their new surroundings in Ontario and successfully integrate into Canadian Society.
