Funded by IRCC ( Immigration, Refugees, Citizenship, Canada) formerly CIC ( Citizenship and Immigration Canada), MHHS Manila office was created to deliver Pre- arrival services. Its aim is to equip Filipino immigrants with settlement information about life in Canada, its culture, languages, employment, accommodation and education.

This component provides newcomers with the information they need about Canada and the community in which they intend to settle. It includes information provided via the Web, orientation sessions overseas, and post-arrival assistance with life skills and generalized individual/ family settlement counselling.
Employment Related Services
The majority of newcomers come to Canada intending to enter the labor market. Examples of activities under this component include projects that help immigrants of all skill levels obtain the supports they need to get work in a regulated or non-regulated occupation; orientation to the Canadian workplace culture and other essential skills training; provision of credential assessment process facilitation; interships; mentorships; work placements; and other services that are intended to equip newcomers with the skills and support they need for entry into the labour market.

NEEDS ASSESSMENTS AND REFERRALS
Needs assessment is a formal review of newcomer needs across a broad specturm of settlement areas (language, employment, housing, etc.). Referrals are links to specific services that help newcomers settle in Canada. These activities should result in development of a Settlement Plan for the newcomer, which outlines a strategy to achieve settlement success based on identified needs and available IRCC- funded service providers and other community supports.
