What We Do

Immigrant Services Shuswap
Shuswap Settlement Services Society offers services for immigrant and refugee newcomers, including settlement and integration, translation and interpretation, mentoring, job search assistance and guidance, volunteer matching, and peer support. We also provide outreach and education in the community through community development workshops on anti-racism, multiculturalism, diversity awareness, immigration, and human rights.

Welcoming and Respectful Communities
Shuswap Settlement Services serves as the lead agency for the Welcoming Communities Program. Over 40 local agencies, businesses and institutions committed to building a diverse, welcoming and inclusive community in British Columbia’s Shuswap Region. Community partners work to develop the community’s capacity to integrate diversity by sharing resources and information aimed at promoting and supporting an increasingly diverse community. Our long term goal is to develop the Shuswap District’s capacity to more effectively attract, welcome and integrate newcomers into our communities, workplaces, organizations and institutions.
