10 OCASI RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ONTARIO BUDGET 2016
OCASI – Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants as well as other sector umbrella organizations across Canada were given the opportunity to provide a written submission to CIC NHQ with further input and suggestions on Canada's settlement policy following the conclusion of the National Settlement Conference Vision 2020.
The Metcalf Foundation is currently accepting letters of interest to the Metcalf Foundation’s Inclusive Local Economies Opportunities Fund, an open call for original ideas and compelling approaches that lead to meaningful economic inclusion for low-income people and communities in Toronto.
The Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration (MCI) will be releasing an open Call for Proposals (CFP) in early July 2012 for delivery of the Newcomer Settlement Program (NSP) across Ontario beginning April 2013.
The goal of the program is to support the successful settlement and integration of newcomers to Ontario. The program is delivered by a province-wide network of non-profit agencies that assist newcomers in settling and integrating into communities across Ontario.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is expected to issue a national Call for Proposals (CFP) by the first week in August, and an announcement is expected within the next few weeks. Applications are to be submitted online.
OCASI has agreed to facilitate the development of a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document by sharing questions with CIC that member agencies may have about the CFP.
