WHAT IS MSEP?
Multicultural, Settlement and Education Partnership (MSEP) is a partnership between Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the Peel District School Board and the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board.
The MSEP program is part of the Welcoming Communities stream, agencies that provide services under this stream work collaboratively to share best practices, information and expertise to develop tools and strategies to connect vulnerable groups with established support networks.
WHAT WE DO
Our settlement counsellors in schools provide settlement services to 70 schools (click for a list of schools) in the Peel Region to help newcomer parents and students successfully settle and integrate into the Canadian culture and the education system.
Settlement Counsellors work with schools to create welcoming, safe and inclusive spaces where newcomers can access information, services and assistance in their own language and in a culturally sensitive manner. Services are delivered in: Punjabi, Urdu, Hindi, Gujarati, Spanish, Arabic, Tagalog, and Tamil.
Settlement Counsellors build partnerships and develop joint programming with community stakeholders, invite community stakeholders to conduct workshops to share their expertise and also host large scale community events to support such connections.
