The Trudeau government has announced $113 million in new money to improve pre-arrival services for future immigrants to Canada.
Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen made the announcement this morning at the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Immigrant Settlement and Integration Program office in Vancouver. He also announced that, as part of that funding, the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. program would receive $22.4 million.
The Vancouver-based program is one of four operations that provide information, orientation and referrals to prospective economic and family-class immigrants nationwide. The $113 million sum will fund 16 service providers, most of them operating locally. Canada has provided pre-arrival help to new immigrants for 20 years
This isn’t a news item so much as a CBC press release on behalf of the Liberal Party.
