PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS INFORMATION IS INTENDED FOR PROFESSIONALS IN THE SETTLEMENT AND INTEGRATION SECTOR, IF YOU ARE A NEWCOMER, CLICK HERE.

The ARAISA office is currently closed, and the team is working remotely. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, we’re still here for you: info@araisa.ca.

We are all concerned about the unprecedented situation that we are currently experiencing. Settlement and integration organizations are facing significant challenges today and are doing a tremendous job to support and to continue to deliver services to newcomers.
To help our members and the sector in general, we have compiled on this page a few resources to support professionals in the sector.

We also invite front-line workers and management staff to join the conversation in the Current Events and Settlement Group on SettleNet.org (the national community of practice). There, you will be able to share resources and best practices with your peers across Canada.
