Newcomer Settlement Program
The Ontario government supports the Newcomer Settlement Program. Community settlement agencies right across Ontario deliver this program.
CLEO (Community Legal Education Ontario)
Since 1974, CLEO has developed clear, accurate, and practical legal rights information to help people who have low incomes or face other barriers, such as language or literacy, to understand and exercise their legal rights.
CATHOLIC IMMIGRATION CENTRE
Bilingual service offered by the Catholic Immigration Centre is available to immigrants who would like to get information on services offered in the Ottawa area. There is an increase in services (in schools, churches and long term health centres) in the Orléans multicultural community – many visits can be made at the home or by telephone.
PROGRAMS AT THE OTTAWA PUBLIC LIBRARY
The Ottawa Public Library can help you learn English and French, prepare for the Ontario driver’s test and the Canadian citizenship test, find information about education, family issues, housing and other settlement services. A calendar of activities is available on the library’s website for anyone interested in participating in groups or workshops.
