The Immigrant Welcome Centre is providing free settlement and support services to newcomers to Canada.
The not-for-profit organization is helping people settling in the Comox Valley, Campbell River and the North Island.
The centre’s group programs and English classes begin in September.
The classes are offered online and in person and are nationally acknowledged when applying for Canadian citizenship.
“If you are a newcomer or know of any newcomers, we encourage you to get in touch with us,” says a press release from the Immigrant Welcome Centre.
“We can help with any of the following: find a place to live, look for a job, make new friends, register for English classes, access government and community services, understand the local culture and customs, understand your rights in Canada, become a Canadian citizen and more.”
