CIC Puts Out Call for New Immigrant Programs

Resettling in a new country is always a struggle. Not only is there the challenge to learn a new language, but also acclimating to a new culture and new customs. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has put out a call for proposals for programs to help newcomers such as language and settlement services.

The CIC funds services and programs to help newcomers settle in every year and as we’re finishing out the last stretch of 2012, CIC is looking for a whole new batch of ‘em. And the best part? The amount of funding for these programs is nearly tripled for 2012-2013.

Anyone can submit proposals on the CIC e-submission page. The provinces of Manitoba, British Columbia and Quebec are not included in the settlement services of CIC, but international and national proposals are welcome from all provinces.

Submit your proposal by September 7, 2012!
