ISAP helps newcomers gain access to community services to meet their immediate needs.
Under ISAP, immigrant-serving organizations can:
refer you to economic, social, health, cultural, educational and recreational services;
give you s on banking, shopping, managing a household and other everyday tasks;
provide interpreters or translators, if you need them;
provide non-therapeutic counselling; and
help you prepare a professional-looking résumé and learn job-searching skills.
The Immigrant Settlement and Adaptation Program (ISAP), a federal government program, pays for these services.
A list of immigrant-serving organizations across Canada can be found on the Internet
Your local immigrant-serving organization can direct you to a LINC Assessment Centre, which will then refer you to organizations offering LINC classes. You can also refer to the book Welcome to Canada: What You Should Know to find a LINC Assessment Centre in your area.
Manitoba, British Columbia and Quebec have programs similar to LINC, the Host program and ISAP, but they may have slightly different names.
Your local immigrant-serving organization can direct you to a Host program organization in your community.
