The Thunder Bay Multicultural Association (TBMA) – Newcomer Settlement Program (NSP) is aimed to support the successful settlement and integration of newcomers to Ontario. We recognize that successful integration is a lengthy and complex process that requires adjustments for newcomers and the community of Thunder Bay and region. We provide information on the services available to meet newcomers needs during the settlement and integration process; orientation to Canadian life and culture; assistance with settlement related issues; and referral and service linking to connect newcomers to services and resources in the broader community of Thunder Bay and region.

After working through an assessment of a newcomer’s needs, we create a personalized, client-focused, plan to meet those needs in the Newcomer Settlement Program (NSP)

  • Permanent residents
