What if the refugees we sponsor can't find work to support themselves?

Finding meaningful employment can be difficult for newcomers, especially if they have low language skills. Many settlement agencies offer language programs and other specialize in supporting job-seekers who are new to Canada. You can find an agency in your community through Settlement.Org’s Services Near Me interactive map.

There are also social assistance programs available that newcomers may be eligible for such as Employment Insurance, Ontario Works and the Ontario Disability Support Program. To find out about the eligible criteria and for information on how to apply, visit Settlement.org, the Service Canada website or the ServiceOntario website.
