BC Settlement and Integration Services Program (BC SIS)

BC Settlement and Integration Services (BC SIS) Program is to support the social and economic integration of newcomers to the province. The program targets newcomers who are not eligible for federal settlement services, specifically, temporary foreign workers, provincial nominees who are awaiting their permanent residency approval, post-secondary international students, refugee claimants, and naturalized citizens.

 

BC SIS is delivered by VIRCS with cultural sensitivity and confidentiality and funded by the Ministry of Jobs, Trade and Technology. All services are at no charge. BC SIS staff will assist you to navigate immigration processes, meet settlement needs, connect to the community, access labour market information and supports, and upgrade your English language proficiency where appropriate.
