Settlement Community Connections

Connecting with others

Connecting with others in your new community is an important step in the settlement process. Making new friends and contacts will help you feel at home in Canada. It may also help you advance your professional goals by creating a network of people that can support you in your search for work. There are many different ways in which you can connect with others in your new city or town. Some options include:

  • Immigrant-serving organizations
  • Volunteering
  • Community centres
  • Sports teams and sports centres
  • Joining associations or social clubs
  • Getting involved in your child’s school
  • Places of worship
  • Your neighbourhood
