Hello,

I am curious to know if there are any organizations that provide services for internationally educated newcomers who are considering studying at Canadian institutions but are unsure what program(s) would best suit their interests/career goals. I remember being in that situation 9 years ago when I first arrived in Canada. I made many poor choices and wasted precious time and of course money because I was not entirely sure what options were available and how to get advice.

Do such services exist or the only option is to book appointments with coordinators at educational institutions?

Thank you.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing this situation with us.

This is really valuable information and experience you have shared.

It is difficult to find services such as the ones you are describing because most services are funded by the government to serve permanent residents.

In such cases, you generally only have the option to contact the coordinators at the educational institutions.

There is one program however that is fairly new and may be helpful. It is called International Student Connect. This is funded by the Government of Ontario and is managed by Costi.

The International Student Connect program includes both online and in-person support for international students in Ontario.

Please note that Settlement.Org does not promote or endorse one service over another. In this case, this is a very unique program in Ontario and therefore we are mentioning.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
