Newcomer Services

Starting a life in a new country can be challenging in many ways. Most newcomers don’t know where to begin or who to turn to for assistance. Indus Community Services has over 35 years’ experience in guiding newcomers through a maze of employment, education & training, housing, health, documentation requirements and financial realted questions that first come to mind.

Our settlement services offer information, orientation, English language training with childcare, employment support, as well as specialized skills training programs for all newcomers. We also support international students, refugees, and naturalized Canadians. Our services are free of charge, and culturally and linguistically responsive.

Our staff speak a variety of languages including Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati and Arabic. Our programs are inclusive and welcome individuals of all faiths, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. We will be there for you every step of the way to ensure your transition goes as smoothly as possible.
