PICS Settlement Department has been providing free services to the immigrant population since 2002. Our Surrey office serves eligible clients from Surrey and Delta focusing on: quick orientation, needs assessment and referrals, counselling, employment support, community connections and various workshops. Our settlement staff speaks English, Punjabi, Urdu, Hindi, Dari, Farsi, Arabic and Pashto languages. Free on site child minding is available for clients accessing these services.

This program addresses the transitional issues faced by newcomers by assisting them to overcome barriers arising out of lack of necessary skills and/or limited knowledge about Canada. The program aims at ensuring adequate participation in the social, cultural, civic and economic life.

At the time of the intake, clients are required to produce their valid Permanent Residency (PR) document in Canada.
