Newcomer Settlement Services at SLNRC help newcomers settle in their community and integrate into Canadian society through four Settlement programs.
If you are a newcomer to London, our Settlement team can help you at SLNRC, at designated London Schools and at the Jalna Branch Library.

Settlement Counsellors provide formal identification of client needs and connect them and their family to available supports and guide them to make informed settlement decisions. One-on-one, family and group information sessions are organized to enhance the integration of newcomers in the society. See calendar above and call to register.
Library Settlement Workers at Jalna Branch Public Library (same building as SLNRC) meet with clients to assess their needs and set individual priorities. Provide library tours with library staff as well as group information sessions including Citizenship Information Sessions to prepare newcomers for citizenship tests (Childminding is offered for parents with children).
In partnership with The London District Catholic School Board (LDCSB) and The Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) and the Settlement Workers at schools assist newcomer students and their families to settle into their schools and community. Please call our SWIS Supervisor Michelle Barkley at 519-686-8600 ext. 7385 for details about your specific school hours and staffing.
This program encourages social, cultural and professional interactions between newcomers and their community. It assists newcomers to become engaged and feel at home in London. Click the blue circle above to explore our Youth Programming.For:Youth and Adults
