The IRCOM model is focused on:

  • A holistic approach to assist families, rather than individuals, by offering English classes, life-skills training, and children and youth programs in the community where they live
  • Fostering independence, rather dependency
  • Connecting people with existing supports rather than duplicating existing services and only creating programming where gaps exist
  • Building trust and encouraging community building
  • Employing new Canadians who understand the challenges faced by newcomers
  • Utilizing volunteers and a highly efficient, low-cost delivery model

The IRCOM Model is one-of-a-kind in Canada.

This video, produced by Pathways to Prosperity, champions a promising practice in the settlement sector.

IRCOM was honoured to be a part of the project.
