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.
