Newcomer Programming – National Call for Proposals
February 20, 2019
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to inform constituents that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is issuing a call for proposals for the Settlement and Resettlement Assistance programs. The National Call for Proposals (CFP) intake process has been streamlined since the previous CFP to improve the experience for service provider organizations and maximize funding flexibility.
Through the Settlement Program, eligible newcomers receive the information that they need about life in Canada, the community in which they will settle, language training, help finding a job, and connections with established immigrants and Canadians.
The Resettlement Assistance Program provides support and services to address the immediate and essential needs of government-assisted refugees and other eligible clients being resettled to Canada from overseas, such as provision of temporary accommodations.
The CFP is a competitive process that improves the settlement and integration services for newcomers to Canada. Proposals will be evaluated based on their individual advantages and other considerations, such as ensuring the proposed services are widely available, avoiding duplication of services, and ensuring good value for taxpayer’s money.
“I encourage all eligible applicants in the Yellowhead riding to complete your proposals and submit them before 6:00 p.m. on April 12, 2019,” concluded MP Eglinski.
