Through the YMCA Library Settlement Partnerships (LSP), our Settlement Workers are located within the libraries to continue to support newcomer and immigrant needs. Our Settlement Workers can provide support with citizenship, housing, education, English language assessments, connecting with community resources, and much more. Through our collaboration with Idea Exchange, together we are working to foster a smooth transition into the Cambridge community.
The Library Settlement Partnership program is a partnership of Idea Exchange, the YMCA’s Immigrant Services Program, and Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
· Virtual settlement support to newcomers
· Information Sessions relevant to newcomer needs in collaboration with Idea Exchange
· LSP staff provide orientation to Library Services and referrals
