Government of Canada: Seeking Applications for Settlement Program

Deadline: 28 November 2017

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is accepting applications for its Settlement Program to provide services to newcomers to Canada, and supports their integration.

IRCC recognizes that establishing a new life in new country can be a challenging process and that services for newcomers should be delivered in a manner that reflects their dignity and strengths. To better support newcomers to Canada, IRCC would also like to improve communications to reach newcomers with the right information at the right time.

Priorities

  • Language acquisition: Testing models of language instruction in the workplace, as well as other language interventions to better understand which are most effective and efficient for language learning.
  • Employment: Supporting the economic integration of newcomers, in particular refugees, through interventions for improving newcomer employment outcomes and supporting the entrepreneurial spirit of newcomers.
  • Youth supports: Facilitating newcomer youth integration, especially for vulnerable youth, in particular focusing on well-being and mental health, labour market entry, higher education access, and 360 degree supports.
  • Harnessing volunteers and supporting capacity building in the settlement sector: Investments to support service provider organizations in harnessing volunteers and generating innovative approaches to improve service delivery efficiency and effectiveness, and to better respond to newcomer needs.
  • Pay-for-performance: Testing of pay-for-performance models, in particular those focused on employment and language outcomes
  • Newcomer well-being and programming to support vulnerable clients: Enhancing newcomer well-being, dignity and social connections, and other adapted programming to better meet the unique needs of vulnerable clients and communities (e.g., women, newcomers with disabilities, LGBTQ, seniors, visible minorities, etc.).
  • Research and analysis to drive innovation and/or understand user experience: Research that contributes to innovative service design and delivery solutions and/or results in a better understanding of newcomers’ needs (e.g., surveys, interviews, participant observations, ethnographies, quasi-experimental design, behavioural economics, and nudge theory, etc.).
