Upcoming Events From Settlement and Language Services
Our Settlement and Language Services team is working remotely available to assist newcomers with their settlement needs.
We know that learning about a new community and all it has to offer can be overwhelming at the best of times, and we’re here to make this transition easier. If you are working with anyone who is new to Canada and new to the area, please refer them to us, so we can show off all that Grey-Bruce has to offer and help them feel comfortable calling Grey-Bruce home.
Settlement and Language Services is more than ESL courses and settlement supports. It’s about helping newcomers build positive community connections, make friends and engage in local events/activities, so they share interelationships with others in our the community.
We are connecting with newcomers are through our monthly virtual Cooking Classes, LINC Classes and working with community organizations, employers and landlords — to introduce and educate newcomers on culture, workplace, housing and much more. To see a calendar with more events in July, contact us at 519-371-9222 ext. 6 or email settlement@osgb.ymca.ca
