One of the key elements of the immigration program of Canada is the PAS – Pre-Arrival Settlement services. They offer newcomers the details and settlement support needed for making informed decisions regarding their new life overseas in Canada prior to their arrival. It includes refugees as well.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada will be offering 22.4 million $ to SUCCESS for assisting in delivering these services. It is one of the 4 service providers offering on-ward referrals, orientation, and national-level information. This is for Family and Economic class pre-arrival clients, as quoted by the CIC News.
SUCCESS will offer online services and overseas in-person services. This is inclusive of specialized supports and comprehensive services for specific client groups and immigration categories. It has also been selected to offer general employment services online. This includes the development of soft skills and details regarding workplace in Canada.
The funding announcement made by IRCC is a part of its improved immigration program for pre-arrival services. This will optimize the social and economic integration of newcomers through:
- Direct linking of clients with their needed services and information through an easy-to-navigate and streamlined process
- Offering Francophone’s pre-arrival services through the model of mutual partnership
- Providing job-specific employment, regional, and general services for boosting job prospects
- If required, encouraging newcomers to apply for pre-arrival job licensure
- Aligning clients with provincial and federal settlement services in Canada
