Consultations were held over the summer and fall of 2018 on the priorities for the Settlement Program and Resettlement Assistance Program 2019 National Call for Proposals. The objectives of these consultations were to:
- Collect insight and obtain input from participants on recommended priorities for the National Call for Proposals for the Settlement and Resettlement Assistance Programs.
- Build a shared vision for the settlement and integration of newcomers that could then be realized through the Settlement Program and its priorities. The approach was designed to ensure representation from a large range and number of stakeholders.
The results of these consultations not only informed the priorities of the Settlement and Resettlement Programs National Calls for Proposals, but also continue to inform our ongoing dialogue and policy development for settlement and resettlement in Canada.
