New to Canada?

July 10, 2014 | Loretta | Comments (0)

It's hard enough moving to a new community, getting to know your neighbourhood, and trying to find the closest grocery store, library, & school. Imagine settling into a new country where you don't speak the language - it can be terrifying! 

In partnership with North York Community House (NYCH), Barbara Frum Library is hosting its annual Summer SEPT Settlement Services. Meet with our settlement workers to find out about local settlement, citizenship, education, employment, and other resources available to you. 

From July 2 to August 8, our settlement workers will be available Monday to Friday, 10-5:30 pm in the library foyer. Language assistance will be available in Russian and Tagalog.




Also, don't forget to register for the following SEPT Employment Workshops (*Eligibility: Workshops are available to Permanent Residents or Convention Refugees):
