Settlement Services

Settlement Services is a programme funded through Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). The mandate of this programme is to assist newcomers to Canada access community services and adjust to life in their new community.

All services are available at no cost to those with Permanent Resident, Convention Refugee, Temporary Resident Permit or Live-In Caregiver status in the County of Wellington and City of Guelph.  

Local Immigration Partnership Survey

Link to the Guelph - Wellington Local Immigration Partnership Survey: Priority Setting 2014

The Guelph-Wellington Local Immigration Partnership (GWLIP) wants to hear from immigrants, newcomers, businesses, service providers, and interested community members about how GWLIP can work together to better support newcomers in the community and create a city and county that are more inclusive and integrated.

In 2010, the GWLIP wrote a Settlement Strategy. This new survey will help GWLI Pset new priorities for 2014-2016. Help us learn what immigrants need and what opportunities exist for immigrants settling in Guelph and Wellington County. Filling out this survey will help us ensure that our actions continue to be responsive to the changing immigration situation in our communities.
