All Newcomers Need Support

All immigrants experience a period of temporary vulnerability, regardless of their level of education, professional experience, English language fluency, or economic circumstances. We offer services and support that are tailored to your needs including workshops about the education system in Ontario, navigating the culture, and preparing for citizenship.

You do not need to be Jewish to become a JIAS client. We support newcomers from around the world regardless of faith or country of origin. We are inclusive, LGBTQ+ friendly, and serve all populations. We have a diverse staff and offer settlement services in a variety of languages.

We know how challenging it is to get started in a new country. Your JIAS settlement worker will provide customized support and will be with you every step of the way to help orient you to the city, community, province, and country – including referring you to the programs and services that are a good fit for you and your family. We answer questions about immigration procedures, housing, health care, schooling, language training, community programs, and so much more.

It doesn’t matter where you are in your immigration journey. If you are planning to immigrate or if you are new to Canada, please call 416-630-6481 or email intake@jiastoronto.org.
