OCASI hosts practical programs that create access to social, economic and political participation of newcomers in Ontario. We work on specific activities to provide needed services to sector workers, create collaborative initiatives and enhanced access to professional development and skills development across our sector.
OCASI seeks to create and implement innovative solutions to existing sector issues, and to provide cross-sectoral support to agencies and newcomers directly. Our overall goal is to support and maintain a strong service-delivery system that meets the changing needs of newcomers to Ontario and Canada. With our members, OCASI ensures that our projects reach a wide range of sector workers, in all areas of Ontario.
Technology and community development combine strongly in creating innovative OCASI projects. OCASI is an invaluable partner to the settlement sector, to governmental organizations and to community agencies across Ontario. Developing these partnerships, nurturing new ones, and leading the way for fair, accessible and integrated settlement services remain OCASI's objectives for many years to come.
