Settlement services offer you personal help
After arriving, you may find you have many questions but aren’t sure where to find the information you need.

- housing information

- health information, finding medical care, counselling services and dealing with crisis issues
- translation and interpretation services
- money management, shopping on a budget, finding financial supports

- immigration-related questions
- English classes
- information about life in Manitoba, Canadian culture, rights and laws
- connecting with information and services about cultural, religious and other community events
- finding a notary public
- referral to immigrant services for health, family, youth, women’s and other special issues
