The goal of the Newcomer Settlement Program (NSP) is to help newcomers fully engage in all aspects of Canadian life; social, economic, political and cultural, and to maximize the benefits of their participation and contribution to Canadian society.
To achieve this goal, the NSP focuses on improving the quality and availability of, and access to, services that improve the social and economic situation of newcomers. Funding is provided to community-based organizations that:
- Deliver effective programs and services for newcomers;
- Promote strong links and coordination between settlement and other services needed by newcomers;
- Find new ways of meeting existing and emerging needs by filling service gaps; and
- Increase the effectiveness of the settlement service delivery system through the development of innovative solutions to sector issues and collaboration with other service providers.
