Canada Launches Newcomer Integration and Resettlement Services

Canada's IRCC has selected 824 projects to provide newcomer integration services to immigrants across the country for up to 5 years. Funding for the approved resettlement projects is expected to begin on April 1, 2020, and end by March 31, 2025. In 2018 Canada announced a goal to welcome 1,000,000 newcomers over 3 years, the IRCC's newcomer programs are key to help immigrants successfully integrate into life in Canada.

IRCC’s Resettlement Assistance Program (RAP) provides eligible newcomers with information about:

  • life in Canada
  • the community they plan to live in
  • language training
  • help finding a job
  • connections with established immigrants and Canadians

These supports and services help newcomers integrate and build a successful life in Canada, while also helping employers, schools and other organizations build welcoming communities.

"Canada is a recognized international leader in settlement and integration. We firmly believe that when we invest in helping newcomers learn the language, find employment, and build a successful life, all of Canada benefits. The Boys and Girls Club of Moncton project is an example of innovative programming that helps newcomers make the most of their talents to fully integrate and contribute to the Canadian economy and to their communities."

—The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship

Partners chosen for the project include all levels of government, local business leaders and corporate partners. Some of the newcomer resettlement programs include:

  • Boys and Girls Club of Moncton
  • Atlantic Superstore
  • Royal Bank of Canada (RBC)
  • Midland, Irving and Medavie Blue Cross

The resettlement projects were chosen to complement IRCC's Service Delivery Improvement Program, Pre-Arrival Services Program and Visible Minority Newcomer Women Program.

You and your team Evelyn have been an amazing drink of cool pure water in the world of legal processes that sometimes could taste bitter. You have been reasonable, honest, communicative, super patient and always kind in words and actions. Three years ago, I researched Lawyers and attorneys throughout Canada and the U.S. to find a person or company that would help me. The gratitude I have for your safe, gracious and disarming legal paradigms that I had formed from some challenging experiences, evaporated when you led the charge through the pandemic to acquire the Visas we need for my company. So “Yes!” . . . I am very thankful for you and the team members of Ackah Law during this Thanksgiving Season and forever.
