Date Announced:

August 23, 2022


To help newcomers settle in small and rural communities, and access essential services during their first year, Marie-France Lalonde, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, announced today the expansion of critical resettlement capacity and settlement services in eastern Ontario. Through an investment of $840,271, newcomers will have more access to case management support.

The Conseil Économique et Social d’Ottawa-Carleton (CESOC) also received $605,648 in additional funding to support its existing Refugee Resettlement Assistance Program. This will allow the organization to deliver essential services to more government-assisted refugees, including Afghan nationals, in their area.
