Settlement
Services

Moving to a new country can be challenging, whether you have just arrived or have been here for years. Immigrants often face many obstacles, such as language barriers, cultural differences, finding jobs, and accessing essential services. Adapting to a new environment can feel overwhelming, with difficulties like understanding how local systems work, managing financial pressures, and dealing with feelings of loneliness. These challenges can make it hard for immigrants to fully integrate and thrive in their new community.

I would like to say thank you so much to KMC for the assistance, I sincerely appreciate the help and support that they provided to me, especially with my situation when I first arrived in Canada.
 
I also wanted to express my gratitude to the settlement counselor for her hard work in helping me through all these difficult times in my journey. I was so lucky to have KMC in my life for helping me to get through it and to be able to share their support with others. It’s not easy to solve my worries without their help. I salute all the people who helped at KMC! Keep up the Amazing work and God bless you all!”
