About Us

Building Futures in Canada Since 1972
about_us_final

Starting a new life in another country can be very hard, especially when you’re unfamiliar with the culture, language and laws. If you’re new to Canada, ISSofBC can help.

Since 1972, we’ve been providing a variety of support services for immigrants and refugees to help them get settled, find careers and learn all they need to know about starting their new lives in Canada. Through our dedicated staff, volunteers and community partners, we provide settlement, education and employment services for over 25,000 clients every year.

ISSofBC is the largest agency of its kind in Western Canada, with targeted programs for refugees, women, children and youth, plus support services in over 45 languages. Our programs and services are available throughout Metro Vancouver, Squamish and the Okanagan.
