The Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) program is designed to provide consistent service delivery for newcomer families through local schools. Settlement workers in schools pro-actively contact newcomer students and their families to connect them to available programs and services in the community.
SWIS workers help build a support system for newcomer students, their parents, and school staff to ensure successful learning.
Many settlement agencies are located in Toronto. They provide resources and supports for newcomers and refugees.
