Building a Better Tomorrow

the services

Our experienced and passionate MAGMA team is here to help newcomers and provide guidance and advice:

  • Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) provide quality initial settlement services to newcomer families with school-aged children: school registration, readiness, in-school checks…)
  • Youth Inclusion Activities provide support for newcomer youth in their settlement journey so to link them with the right community services, sports programs, and cultural events.
  • Head Start to Employment creates clear pathways to meaningful employment: pre-arrival employment services, navigation and awareness of provincial employment services, support in pathways to International Qualification Recognition (IQR), and engaging employers to ensure they can attract, hire and retain globally competitive talents.
  • Pre-Employment counseling through pre-employment one-on-one and group workshops: resume building, interview skills, job search tips…) as well as facilitating the Federal Internship Program (FIN).
  • Skills Launch for adults is a pre-employability program supporting newcomers age 30+ with in-class WES and EAL support followed by a paid internship.

magma re-envisioned: one year later

Over one year ago, MAGMA invited the community to its Re-Envisioned event where the organization shared its vision and strategy for the Path Forward for better and expanded settlement services with the key objective of supporting newcomers as they embark on their journey towards a new life in our region. The organization renewed its commitment to newcomer integration and retention in the region building on an exceptional and rich four-decade long history of welcoming newcomers and setting them up for success, and the invaluable partnerships and support from and within the community.
