The Community Settlement Initiative of Renfrew and Lanark Counties

The Community Settlement Initiative (CSI) works with the people of Renfrew and Lanark Counties to build welcoming communities for newcomers to Canada. CSI provides free, place-based support to anyone who works with newcomers, including businesses, service providers, municipalities, community groups, and individuals. Together, CSI collaborates with these allies to strengthen their capacity to help welcome newcomers to Canada. 

The Community Settlement Initiative offers free presentations, needs assessments, group training, and one-on-one coaching to help you achieve your goals for creating welcoming communities. 

The Community Settlement Initiative works closely with a number of local partners to achieve their goal of creating welcoming communities for newcomers. In particular CSI works closely with the Local Immigration Partnership of Renfrew and Lanark, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, the Canadian Red Cross, and Algonquin College.
