Immigrant Youth Services

Immigrant Youth Services offers a variety of programs to help newcomer youth integrate into life in Canada.

  • Virtual Culture Club runs weekly in seven middle and high schools, giving youth an opportunity to engage in some intercultural activities and connect with their classmates.
  • Online after school programs runs every weekday, offering homework support, life skills lessons, leadership training, and recreation opportunities.
  • One-to-One Support from a Youth Worker is available for vulnerable youth to help them get their schooling back on track, find employment, housing, medical care, mental health supports, or whatever else they need to achieve their goals.

Transportation for Permanent Residents is on hold due to COVID-19.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The after school program is for youth aged 12-18 who are new to Canada. Priority is given to Permanent Residents.
  • One-to-one support through the Moving Ahead Program is for vulnerable youth aged 14-24 who are Permanent Residents, Protected Persons, or individuals who have been selected to become Permanent Residents by the government of Canada and have received a letter from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada stating so.
