Welcoming Communities>>Needs Assessment and Referral


  • In order to receive services suited to their needs, newcomers, with the help of a CESOC officer, fill out a formal needs assessment document. This assessment provides the basis for developing a settlement and integration plan.
  • To meet the newcomer’s needs, settlement officers may direct him or her to other community agencies that provide specific services not available at CESOC.
  • CESOC has an extensive network of partners working in various areas: economic, social, educational, legal, cultural and artistic, sports and recreation, family support and others.
