Serving the community since 1987
Progressive Intercultural Community Services (PICS) Society provides a broad spectrum of programs and services which includes Employment Programs, Settlement Services, Language Services, Social Programs and Housing Services. Our services assist new immigrants, seniors, farm workers, women and youth.
PICS provides a variety of comprehensive programs and services to assist new and recent immigrants with their transition within Canada.
The staff were very helpful and went beyond what was expected of them. I was in a Skills Link Program for youth in PICS when the FCR Loan Program was introduced to me. Being a new immigrant to Canada with an education and work background in the health care industry in the Philippines, I know that I needed to upgrade my foreign credentials in order to legally practice my profession and to be recognized as a Nurse in BC. This brought a financial challenge to me since I had only been starting to settle in Canada and my income was barely enough to meet my family’s daily expenses. Thankfully, the FCR staff, especially Manmeet who was my career counselor, were very patient in planning and discussing with me every detail of my career plan and how the program can help me achieve my short- and long-term career goals.
PICS Diversity Village
Designed to meet the Social, Cultural and Dietary needs of members of the multicultural community, PICS Diversity Village (PICS seniors Long Term Care Home) will be located in Surrey. PICS’ proposed PICS Diversity Village will be a 140 bed facility fully equipped to care for the elderly who need personalized attention in a setting which is familiar to them.
