Citizenship Preparation

An extension of our work in helping newcomers adapt and become participating members of Canadian society, COSTI’s Citizenship Preparation Program readies participants for the Citizenship Application test by providing them with an overview of Canadian history, geography, and politics.

Citizenship Preparation


As the first point of contact that many immigrants and refugees have with Canadian society, COSTI’s Settlement Services play a critical role in helping them overcome the difficulties and barriers they face in re-establishing their lives. Individual and group counselling sessions orient newcomers to our society and assist them in accessing basic services.
