This program assists newcomers in getting access to basic needs such as health care, schools, banking, insurance, community programming, employment opportunities and housing.

Using the Canadian Language Benchmarks we assess your skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Trained tutors work one to one with learners of English and help you improve your language skills and will be a culture guide and mentor as you adjust to life in Fort Nelson. 

We organize cultural events and field trips to get together and to share our identity.
