Ongoing Programs at Immigrant Services

Settlement Mentorship Program

  • Do you want to practice your English?
  • Do you want to meet more people in Kelowna?
  • Do you want to become more involved in Canadian culture and lifestyle?

The Settlement Mentorship Program can match you with a mentor, who has been living in Canada for a longer amount of time. You and your mentor will meet once a week for a 6 month period and your mentor can help you practice your English, meet people and become more involved in Canadian culture by doing different activities that you are both interested in.

If you or your family are interested in being matched with a mentor or mentor family, please contact Aimee at ac.rcknull@eemia or 250.763.8008 x140.
