Settlement and Education Partnership in York Region (SEPYR)


New to Canada? Do you have a child enrolled in a York Region Public school? We’re here to help you. Funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, SEPYR provides settlement services in many languages for newcomer students and their families in their local schools. Through this program, we are pleased to offer newcomer families support in the following areas: education, employment, language training, housing, health, family related issues, youth issues, legal concerns, finances, library/recreation and more. We have a settlement worker who can speak English, Mandarin, and Cantonese in Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School on Wednesdays to provide services for you.
