Your First Step
The first step in working with MOSAIC is to meet with a settlement worker. In our one-on-one meeting, our Settlement Workers can help answer specific questions about life in Canada.
MOSAIC Settlement Workers are professionals who are ready to help support your transition to Canada, and to the Greater Vancouver Area community. We have supported thousands of newcomers to Canada and are here to welcome you to your new life in Canada!
Once you have met with a MOSAIC Settlement Worker, you will be briefed on the many resources offered to newcomers to Canada. These include:
Improve your English communication skills and make new friends at our weekly Drop-In Conversation Circle. Our volunteers will facilitate discussions on topics related to settling in Canada, including community resources, culture, parenting, etc.

Youth Groups, Workshops & Activities:
The MOSAIC Youth Group meets regularly, giving newcomer youth a chance to share ideas and experiences. In addition to regular Youth Group meetings, we offer education & employment workshops and tailored activities such as leadership building, painting classes, cooking classes and field trips.
We offer a variety of workshops based on topics relevant to newcomers. Topics vary monthly, with past events on BC Housing Information, Education Fundamentals (Registering Children for School, ESL, Graduation Requirements), Canadian Citizenship Preparation, Government Benefits, Stress Management, Healthy Living, Parenting, and Taxes and Foreign Assets.
We offer a number of fun group activities developed to help you learn new skills while also practicing your English and meeting other newcomers. Topics vary each month, with past events on International Cooking, Support Groups, Photo and Computer Classes, Field Trips and more.
Your first meeting at MOSAIC is an ideal starting point to help improve your transition to Canadian life and to find out more about what services are available here at MOSAIC and in your community.
Through the Guided Pathways Case Management program, settlement workers work with you for up to 3 months with intensive settlement support. Settlement workers will help you identify goals, barriers and strengths, develop concrete action plans and monitor your progress.
