The Newcomer Settlement Program

Through the Newcomer Settlement Program (NSP) and the Immigrant Settlement and Adaptation Program (ISAP), RIWC offers settlement support that addresses the psycho-social needs and systemic barriers that affect the lives of immigrant and refugee women and their families during the settlement process.

ISAP Services include: needs assessment, referrals to community services, information & orientation sessions, solution-focused counselling, community service bridging and employment services.

Newcomers eligible for ISAP services are:

  • A permanent resident of Canada;
  • An individual who has been allowed to remain in Canada and to whom CIC intends to grant permanent resident status (including a Minister’s Permit holder or a person who has received special permission to remain in Canada for the purpose of becoming a permanent resident); or
  • A non-immigrant foreign domestic worker in Canada who may subsequently apply for permanent resident status from within Canada, under the terms of the Live-In Caregiver Program (or the former Foreign Domestic Movement Program).

NSP Settlement services include: assessment, referral, information/orientation, general settlement assistance and employment services.

Newcomers eligible for NSP Services are:

  • Permanent residents and citizens of Canada
  • Refugees and refugee claimants
  • Non-immigrant foreign domestic workers in Canada who may subsequently apply for permanent resident status from within Canada under the terms of the Live-In Caregiver Program
