Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have launched a national call for proposals regarding Settlement and Resettlement Programs for newcomers as a show of its dedication towards ensuring A-level settlement services in the country.
Since the last national call for proposals (CFP), several adjustments have been made to the CFP intake process to allow optimum funding flexibility and give service provider organizations better experience.
The target areas to be addressed via the latest call were marked following extensive consultations with stakeholders and partners in the country. Encouraging newcomers’ entrepreneurial spirits as well as engaging the private sector, and giving greater attention to the integration of youths, LGBTQ2+, and refugees – vulnerable population are vital targets.
Canada’s Settlement Program
All eligible newcomers in Canada are exposed to all they need to survive and thrive in the country through its Settlement Program. These include information about life in Canada and the specific community of settlement, job search help, language training as well as creating links with Canadians and established immigrants.
With this help, newcomers settle in faster and better resulting in a greater chance of building a successful life in the country. It also aids schools, employers and others in creating welcoming communities.
The urgent needs of government-assisted refugees and others, including the provision of accommodation, are met through supports and services provided by the Resettlement Assistance Program.
Call for Proposals (CFP)
CFP is a competitive process – fair, transparent and effective – bringing about maximum efficiency and effectiveness regarding Canada newcomers’ settlement and integration services.
Under CFP 2019, both Settlement and Resettlement Assistance will be handled via one intake process despite being different programs. All proposals will be judged based on individual merits as well as considering factors like availability, duplication, and value.
