About the NISW Coordinator
The NISW Coordinator mentors, supports, and offers orientation and guidance to NISW working across Winnipeg. Hosting this program at the Immigrant Centre has ensured a consistent message is given to all newcomers, along with providing a professional standard of practice and training among the NISWs.
The objective of the NISWs is to provide ongoing settlement support in newcomers’ communities, facilitating their initial transition and long-term integration into Canadian Society. The efficiency and success of this program is already being recognized and welcomed by other Service Providers and the wider community.
