Through the program "Programme Réussir l'Integration" and thanks to the financial support of the Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Divérsité et de l'Inclusion, we offer services to newly arrived immigrant women and their families by providing individual and group activities to facilitate their adaptation and integration into Quebec society. In addition to French and English, these services are also provided in many languages, such as Spanish, Arabic and Creole. Languages may vary from one year to the next according to clientele requirements.
Linguistic Integration Program for Immigrants
In order to help immigrant women integrate into Quebec society and to promote their autonomy, the Centre, in collaboration with the Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Divérsité et de l'Inclusion, offers French courses. They are offered on a part-time basis (12 hours per week) for 11 weeks. The learning of French allows these women to feel less isolated, to create new friendships with other women, to access important information, without the need for interpreters, and to promote their social and economic integration, particularly in the job market.
In the context of immigration it is often useful to accompany the newly arrived women in their search for information, particularly if the women are isolated or cannot communicate in French or English. Counsellors from the Centre guide and refer these women in the areas of their concern, such as immigration, financial security, schools for their children… They also act as interpreters in certain situations.
