Neighbourhood Immigrant Settlement Program
The Neighbourhood Immigrant Settlement Coordinator mentors, supports, and offers orientation and guidance to 23 Neighbourhood Immigrant Settlement Workers (NISWs) working across Winnipeg. Hosting this program at the Immigrant Centre has ensured a consistent message is given to all newcomers, along with providing a professional standard of practice and training among the NISWs. The efficiency and success of this program is already being recognized and welcomed by other Service Providers and the wider community.
The Neighbourhood Immigrant Settlement Workers provide settlement information and orientation to newcomers, connect newcomers with programs and services, host special events for newcomers to meet their neighbours and promote public awareness about Immigrant issues.
