When new immigrants land in Canada, they have lots of questions. How do I find housing? Where can I apply for OHIP? Who can help me with my job search? How do I open a bank account? Settlement.Org offers answers to all their questions and helps newcomers settle in their new communities in Ontario.
OCASI offers Settlement.Org & InMyLanguage.org demonstrations for newcomer clients and LINC/ESL learners. The free sessions are meant to inform participants about the various programs, services, resources, and general assistance available not only on the websites but in their local communities as well.
