CIC Calls In Program Proposals To Help New Immigrants Settle
A Fresh CallTo help new Canadian immigrants settle with ease Citizenship and Immigration Canada has called proposals.
The community groups, NPOs, public as well as commercial organizations can submit their proposals. The objective of these programs would be to assist new Canadian immigrants in settling in Canada, overcome the language barrier, easy transition in novel environment of Canada as well as resettlement services.
The proposals are for entire Canada exclusive of settlement services dedicated towards Manitoba, Quebec, and British Columbia. As Manitoba, Quebec, and British Columbia have separate funding agreements of such projects these proposals need to be for the rest of the Canada though organizations from these places too are encouraged to submit there proposals for national and International span.
Jason Kenney, Immigration Minister of Canada said,
“The Call for Proposals process is an important way to solicit service delivery opportunities that will benefit newcomers, such as language training and career counseling, and ensure we are getting best value for taxpayers' dollars.”
What’s going on? Similar programs that are assisting Immigrants and refuges at present would come to an end in 2012 and thus, new proposals have been invited. The funding of the approved projects to commence in 2013 shall be determined this year on the basis of objectives and scope of the project. Project span can vary from local and regional to national as well as international.
Each year CIC draws a budget and reserves funds for such programs that help new immigrants to settle, establish and integrate with as much ease as possible. The settlement funding is dedicated in the direction of immigrants for them to be a part of Canadian Society while the resettlement funds are directed towards settlement and reforms of refugees.
Together We Can Jason Kenney, Immigration Minister of Canada believes that such services are important and precious in order to facilitate immigrants merge into the new environment and communities.
The programs are directed towards overcoming language barriers as well as social and cultural integration for a peaceful and progressive Canada. Apart from language training programs, employment assistance programs as well as referral and information exchange programs are executed. To help merge as a peaceful society cultural programs and get-together are organized. To make new comers aware of such programs, marches are organized at various places and community groups too help spread awareness of such programs.
