Settlement Services

  • The Newcomer Services location in the Malvern area offers a one-stop service for newcomers aged 13 and older. We provide FREE settlement services for newcomer adults, youth, seniors and persons with disabilities. Services include extensive and valuable information, referrals, group workshops and one-on-one assistance on various settlement needs.

  • Welcoming Communities for TDSB Newcomer Youth & Kids is an eight-week mentorship program developed for students new to TDSB schools. This program matches local students with mentors to help ease their transition to Canada and school, through supervised group activities.

  • Enhanced Language Training is a 14-week program that includes eight weeks of in-class business English training followed by a six-week work placement to gain Canadian experience.

  • Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada offers free English classes for newcomers and assists with the settlement process and integration into Canadian society. All locations offer Care for Newcomer Children (CNC) services.
