2017 CFP - Newcomer Settlement Program

Description

The objective of the Newcomer Settlement Program (NSP) is to support the successful settlement and integration of newcomers to Ontario through the provision of targeted quality services. The ultimate goal of the program is to help newcomers integrate successfully and become fully engaged in the social, cultural, civic and economic life of Ontario.

NSP provides funding for direct delivery of settlement and integration services, including services tailored to the needs of high priority groups and/or vulnerable populations. The program is delivered by a province-wide network of community-based not-for-profit organizations that provide newcomers with: information on the services available to meet their needs during the settlement and integration process; orientation to Canadian life and culture; assistance with settlement related issues; and referral and service linking newcomers to services and resources in the broader community.

The Newcomer Settlement Program has two separate funding streams:

    1. The Settlement and Integration Services stream provides funding for settlement and integration services, including services tailored to the needs of high priority groups and/or vulnerable populations.

    2. The Newcomer Youth Settlement and Integration Services stream will support the settlement and integration needs of newcomer youth (ages 12-25) through the provision of targeted and culturally-appropriate services and programs that promote youth engagement opportunities and improved family dynamics.

Each funding stream has a set of specific outcomes. Each funding stream has a distinct application form that needs to be completed. For more information on available funding please see the Application Guide.
