Planning for Canada

Planning for Canada – previously known as the Canadian Immigration Integration Program (CIIP) – provides pre-arrival services to economic and family class immigrants. The program is designed to help newcomers prepare for their relocation, settlement and employment in Canada.

Its services are offered in-person in India and the Philippines, and online world-wide, all of which is free of charge.

Planning for Canada facilitators offer a three-step program in French and English:

  1. A group orientation session
  2. A personalized planning session
  3. A connection to Canadian organizations on an ongoing basis, generally via email

“Indeed, the outcome was very positive. As a result of attending the Planning for Canada services, I have a full-time job and am well on my way to settling down, having done some local certifications as well.”
