Project Overview

Helping Newcomers With Their Settlement Challenges

Newcomers to Canada face many challenges and opportunities.  The Building Futures in Canada website has been developed to provide support and assistance to newcomers upon their arrival in Canada – or in advance of their arrival to prepare for life in their new country. There are video profiles of the experiences of past immigrants who share their settlement stories – including challenges and those that provided assistance. There is information available on everything from finding jobs to basic banking to the general weather and climate conditions in Canada. If you are a newcomer to Canada, or work with newcomers, this site has been designed to assist you.
