Newcomer Settlement Program

CultureLink provides Settlement Services under the Ontario’s Newcomer Settlement Program (NSP), with a particular focus on assisting under-served groups.

Our Roma and Immigration workers provide settlement assistance to Roma and other newcomers. CultureLink assists refugee claimants with completing their applications for asylum, as well as other settlement issues. The Roma we serve are predominantly from the Czech, Slovak, and Hungarian republics. For these service users, immigration issues and day-to-day settlement services are addressed, such as dealing with social services and other local, provincial, and federal organizations.

In addition, we provide general settlement support including:

  • Information and referrals about community and government services such as healthcare, housing, legal, education, translation, and language training
  • Information and referral with finding a job or accessing training and skills development programs
  • Help filling out forms and applications
