The Settlement Program assists immigrants and refugees in overcoming barriers specific to the newcomer experience, such as a lack of official language skills and limited knowledge of Canada, so that they can participate in social, cultural, civic and economic life in Canada. The program focuses on five areas: needs assessment and referrals, information and orientation; language training and skills development; employment related services; and community connections. There are also support services to ensure that programming is accessible, such as transportation, child care and translation services. All services are designed and delivered by service provider organizations in Canada and overseas.
