This four-module self-directed introductory-level course is to help front-line practitioners working with immigrant and refugee communities to better understand the context in which settlement services are delivered. The focus is on the history of immigration to Canada, an overview of immigration law and related policy, and the current systems for admitting immigrants and refugees to Canada. This is the first of two courses about the foundations of settlement work in this province. It is strongly recommended that you complete this course before enrolling in Level 2.

Successful participants will commit approximately 3-4 hours of learning for each module.
