O2O (Orientation to Ontario) Workshop

Orientation to Ontario (O2O) workshop is a great opportunity to have all your settlement questions answered. Ontario has some of the best benefits in the world: health care, education, jobs and more. Learn how to access these services at our O2O workshop: it is free and open to all newcomers regardless of the immigration status.

Since our office is temporarily closed until further notice due to pandemic situation with COVID-19, we have moved O2O workshops to an online model, hosting two-day (2.5 hours each day) webinars in June and July 2020.
Once we receive updates on our office opening date we are planning to resume O2O workshops delivery at CultureLink.

We offer two models for O2O workshop: Standard (one & a half day) and Fast Track (one day) workshop. Both models are designed and customized to guide new immigrants through the settlement process in Ontario, connecting newcomers with local communities, government resources, provincial and municipal services.

Refreshments, lunch and the workbook ‘An Introduction for Newcomers Settling in Ontario’ are provided during the workshop at CultureLink Main office; we also cover your TTC fare.
