English | New to Canada?

One family… with you!

The French-language Catholic schools of the Conseil scolaire catholique MonAvenir are welcoming places where each student finds his place and where the Gospel values are experienced and conveyed each and every day.

Wishing to nurture greater solidarity in the community, the Csc MonAvenir offers settlement services for newcomer students and their families in the Peel-Halton region, in Toronto, through an agreement with the Centre francophone de Toronto, and also in Hamilton and Niagara, in partnership with the Centre de santé communautaire Hamilton-Niagara.

Settlement workers are in our schools to orient and accompany students and their family by helping them to become better acquainted to life in Canada and to integrate into their new environment.

Services available:

  • One on one meetings with students and their family;
  • Student and parents orientation in order to adapt to the Ontario education system and to Canadian life;
  • Informational workshops for parents and mentors;
  • Training sessions for school personnel;
  • Assistance in cultural understandings for parents and school staff;
  • Referral of newly arrived families to the various settlement services available in the community.

This program is offered with the financial support of the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration of Canada (CIC).
