OCASI is facilitating a series of general information sessions across Ontario by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), on the settlement and resettlement program funding. Sessions will be held in communities across Ontario, identified by OCASI regions. The sessions are open to all organizations interested in applying for IRCC Settlement and Resettlement funding. They are targeted to organizations with little to no funding experience with IRCC. This need was identified through the CFP 2019 consultations IRCC Ontario Region conducted over 5 weeks from late September to the end of October 2018.
The IRCC presentation will focus on a review of the intake processes, funding mechanisms available, and the process of managing funding. Sessions will also include an introduction to OCASI and its role as the provincial umbrella organization for immigrant and refugee-serving agencies in Ontario. Participants will have the opportunity to ask clarification and have their questions answered.
- Please be prepared with a headset and mic for the best participation options (or you will be limited to using 'chat' for questions and comments)
- Please test your equipment BEFORE the webinar because it is quite difficult to resolve technical issues during the presentation.
- For optimum participation we recommend using a high speed internet cable connection (NOT Wifi) for stable access.
- Please turn off or move hands-free communication equipment (ie. cellphone, hands-free landline, laptop with mic) away from the computer you will be using for the webinar. We have found that other equipment nearby sometimes causes audio interference.
