About this program
Are you new in Canada? Dealing with health issues, poverty, a lack of English, or feel isolated? We can help.
We know it can take many years to feel a part of a new community. MOSAIC Settlement & Integration Services help a variety of new immigrants to Canada, but for those who need more help, we offer our Moving Ahead Program.
Moving Ahead services
Moving Ahead clients will be paired with a Case Manager who will provide services at the Burnaby Family Life Institute, in the community or in client homes.
Moving Ahead programs include:
- One-on-one support
- Group conversation circles to meet people & practice English
- Life skills classes (computer training, social skills, labour market information)
Each activity is tailored specifically to the higher needs of these clients. Most clients participate in the program for about one year.
Suite 310, 7155 Kingsway
Who uses Moving Ahead?
Some clients need more dedicated and extended case management. Many struggled before coming to Canada, and face more challenges here.
If you are dealing with any of the following, our Moving Ahead Program offers intensive services and support on dealing with hardships, gaining life skills, understanding Canada and accessing support.
Moving Ahead is ideal for newcomers facing settlement difficulties such as:
- Health issues
- Literacy challenges
- Lack of English
- A large family
- Isolation or lack of social support
- Lack of life skills (job-readiness, computer skills)
