Newcomer Settlement Program

Did you know?
More than 80,000 newcomers each year in 30 communities across Ontario use Newcomer Settlement Program services.

The Ontario government supports delivery of settlement services to newcomers through the Newcomer Settlement Program. 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 community-based not-for-profit agencies that assist newcomers in settling and integrating to communities across Ontario. Settlement agencies provide newcomers with information, guidance and support during the settlement process, and connect newcomers to services and resources in the broader community.
