The SettlementAtWork.Org website has professional development resources and news for front-line workers, program staff, managers and administrative staff. The goal of this site is to help workers prepare to best serve their newcomer clients, and to help organizations support their staff.
SettlementAtWork.Org is divided into two parts, a French-language website providing time-sensitive information and a bilingual Wiki.
The website features news items, professional development events, job postings and requests for proposals of interest to the sector.
The bilingual Wiki serves as a collaboration tool for accessing and sharing information on sector projects and initiatives, as well as, resources including research reports, manuals and guides for best practices and online training opportunities.
This year, social media has been deeply integrated into all parts of the site, with more in development, such as a Twitter account and a Facebook page which post all updates that are made to the site. Also, RSS feeds are richer, for every type of post, making it easier for visitors to subscribe to the site and be informed of updates. It is now possible for site visitors to submit content directly through the site, making it easier for us to review and publish content.
