  1. Hi,

    I work for the communications department of the Peel District School Board.

    We would like to have the link to the We Welcome the World Centre posted on your resource page.

    The Welcome Centres are designed to help newcomer families with school-aged children register for school and get settled in Canada. On our site, families will have access to information in more than 40 languages.

    I have posted the link to the site for your reference.

    Thanks,

  2. Could you please add the following to your resources for new Canadian immigrants page?

    ISSofBC’s Skills Connect for Immigrants program (www.issbc.org/skillsconnect) is an individualized employment bridging program that helps skilled immigrants connect to jobs in BC that build on their pre-arrival skills, training, knowledge, and experience.

    Thank you very much.
