Since 1972, we’ve been providing a variety of support services for immigrants and refugees to help them get settled, find careers and learn all they need to know about starting their new lives in Canada. Through our dedicated staff, volunteers and community partners, we provide settlement, education and employment services for over 20,000 clients every year.
Quality and professionalism are very important to us. ISSofBC and ISS Language & Career College of BC belong to a number of regulatory bodies establishing the highest standards of quality programming, education and business practices for our clients and students.
ISSofBC provides a supportive environment for newcomers to Canada of all backgrounds. We are here to meet your settlement, English language and employment needs.
