Settlement Services

The Virden Community Chamber of Commerce, through a grant from the province of Manitoba hired a settlement services facilitator to guide immigrant workers and assist all newcomers in the area. Our hope is to provide newcomers with the necessary information and skills to become familiar and comfortable living in our communities.

Our mission is to provide assistance to people who are learning to live in a new country or area of the country. Settlement services help people develop the skills and knowledge to participate in Canadian society.
