From finding information on how to start a new business to opening a bank account, there are many steps newcomers take to successfully make their way in Canada.
An internet resource helps newcomers quickly and easily find a range of government services, in addition to settlement services, in their communities. This resource is easy to find at www.servicesfor- newcomers.cic.gc.ca.
The Services for Newcomers resource helps newcomers to Canada locate settlement services in their community, as well as find a range of other federal, provincial and territorial government services. Newcomers will be able to e-mail the results of their searches to themselves, family members or other newcomers, making it easier to keep track of their search results. This online resource will be updated and expanded continually to add more information on services newcomers will likely be searching for when they first arrive.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada funds a number of services, including language training, employment related assistance and community service referrals to help newcomers settle, adapt and integrate into Canadian society. These services are delivered in partnership with provinces, territories and community-based organizations.
