According to Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, a person who has been determined by Canada to be either (a) a Convention Refugee or (b) a person in need of protection (i.e. a person who may not meet the Convention definition but is in a refugee-like situation defined in Canadian law as deserving of protection, for example: They are in danger of being tortured or persecuted.
When an immigrant is approved for permanent residence in Canada, they receive a Confirmation of Permanent Residence document. An immigration officer at a port of entry or a CIC office sign and dates this document when permanent residence is finally granted. This document is presented by permanent residents to provincial and territorial organizations in order to access services. There is an immigration category printed on this document.
Newcomer and Community Building programs do not offer financial assistance (i.e., gift cards or monetary support). Instead, we help with government benefit applications and provide community resources. Our NCBP services are all free.
I was feeling sad and anxious at home after losing my job due Covid 19. I was expecting to take classes just to improve my English skills but the Conversation Circle was way bigger than I thought. In this group, I have learned about culture, empathy, friendship, and how to live a better life in Canada making connections with those brave women. MOSAIC services make me feel like I belong here. In addition, the MOSAIC services help me to get ready to find a new job. I’m so glad I got the job I was looking for and I’m sure it wouldn’t be possible without MOSAIC services support. I have no words to express my gratitude to MOSAIC people
