Newcomer Services

Start with a strong community

As you go through the process to immigrate to Montreal, Ometz can provide essential referrals, guidance and support to help you make a new life with the tools you need. Our goal is to help you settle and integrate into our larger community.

Visits and referrals for people immigrating to Montreal:

  • Exploratory visit: During this one-on-one information meeting, newcomers can find out about local Montreal neighbourhoods and schools. You can learn about the local Jewish community, find out about employment services, and get a referral to an external professional.
  • We can also refer you to the right resource for questions about how to sponsor a spouse or relative, get permanent residence status, or get a work permit.

Welcome program

These four sessions cover topics that really matter to you:

  • Session 1: Find out what Ometz does and how to access public services, like medical services and the child tax benefit.
  • Session 2: Discover Montreal's Jewish community.
  • Session 3: Find out how to network and get a job.
  • Session 4: Learn about your rights and responsibilities as a newcomer to Canada.

Settlement services and integration activities

  • Cultural, social and educational activities
  • Jewish holiday celebrations such as Hanukkah
  • Family trips and outings, often with a cultural component
  • Young adult social and networking activities with local Montrealers
  • Activities for children
