New Immigrants to Canada

Have you and your family settled in Canada after January 2021?  Please take two minutes to complete the Jamati Newcomer Registration.

Welcome to Canada! We are pleased that you have chosen Canada as your new home. There are many supports available to help newly arrived Jamati members establish a sense of belonging and good quality of life in this new chapter of their lives.  

We encourage any community member who has moved to Canada within the last two years to introduce themselves to their local Jamati leadership or register online to be contacted by a volunteer for settlement assistance. 

Please take a moment to explore the 2023 Guide for Ismaili Newcomers to Canada. This guide provides useful information for settling and working in Canada. It covers a wide range of topics, including housing, employment, education, health care, banking, and transportation. The guide also includes information on Jamati Institutions that provide and assist with programs and services for the newly arrived Jamati members in order to help them settle in Canada successfully.



1. Settlement Resources:

  • International Credentials
    • Have your international credentials recognized in Canada through free career bridge programs
    • Colleges and institutes have been using a suite of well-developed tools, processes and quality practices that allow people to receive recognition for what they bring from previous training and work experience, known as Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR). Please visit this page for more information and reach out to a college near you and ask about PLAR
    • Get your credentials assessed here

2. COVID-19 Resources: 

You can also call the Jamati Access Line at 1-888-536-3599. The Access Line provides you with information or access to resources, within and outside the Jamat, that can help you.
