In order to help immigrant children and their families to integrate in society the Canadian government is investing over $1.6 million in London, Ontario. While the Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) programs provide interactive orientation in the school system of Ontario as well as other community support services.
Ed Holder, Member of Parliament for London West added, “The Government of Canada is helping newcomer youth and their families succeed… The investment will help improve the lives of young newcomers to London. When we invest in our youth, we invest in the future of Canada.”
Meanwhile Dr. Erik Hoskins commented, “Our government knows that helping newcomer families get settled is key to their success.” The Canadian government has tripled their budget on settlement services for immigrants and their families in Ontario, since many people from all over the world migrate to Canada searching for a superior lifestyle. While the country’s economy depends from the skilled immigrant labour. To gain a permanent residence visa in Canada they have a point based immigration system.
