Newcomers to Chatham-Kent now have access to settlement services.
Today marked the official opening of Boréal’s new point of service in Chatham. The event was scheduled as part of a discovery tour of the region. Representatives from Collège Boréal, the municipality of Chatham-Kent, and various community partners took part in the event highlighting the city’s numerous opportunities, particularly in terms of quality of life, employment possibilities, housing, and education.
Located at 161 King Street West, Boréal’s new site offers a number of services, including needs assessment, referrals, information sharing, liaison services, employment services, workshops, and group activities.
Financed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, the initiative aims to bridge the City of Windsor, where Collège Boréal offers a wide variety of immigration services, and the City of Chatham-Kent which wants to attract and retain more newcomers.
