About this program

MOSAIC is proud to have a partnership with the New Westminster School District (SD40) by providing settlement services. The Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) program helps newcomer students and their families adapt and integrate to Canadian life and education during their initial years in Canada.

We provide newcomer students and their families with free assistance in schools as well as field trips and workshops. Our multilingual settlement workers have experience helping students and families adjust to education in Canada as well as integrating into the community. It is our goal to help new families feel welcome and fully engaged within their new community.

Settlement services are provided in English, with interpretation available.

Settlement Workers in Schools services at MOSAIC are made available thanks to funding from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
