  • CONNECTING partners from the settlement community with health partners.
  • BUILDING KNOWLEDGE about the needs and challenges experienced by Francophone immigrants.
  • DEVELOPING TOOLS to support settlement professionals.
  • PROVIDING HEALTH TRAINING to settlement professionals.

This project addresses the health priorities outline in the FCFA’s Plan stratégique communautaire en immigration francophone 2018–2023, thereby enhancing the vitality of communities.

The SSF is convinced that this project aligns well with these priorities insofar as the expected results will support the delivery of settlement services related to the health needs of Francophone immigrants.
