Chinese Settlement Worker
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 at Unionville High School on Thursdays and Fridays to provide services for you. You can contact the School Settlement Worker Ms. Julie Zhang at:

Community Service Hours
Completing forty hours of community service is a graduation requirement.  Students are encouraged to look for volunteer opportunities in their communities as soon as possible.  Students should confirm with the Guidance Department that their choice of community service opportunity complies with the requirements before they begin the volunteer placement.   The Immigrant Youth Centre is a good place to start looking for volunteer opportunities.  The public library system has over 1000 volunteers and is another good option for students. (During the current 2020/2021 school year, some of the volunteer requirements and options have changed). 
If possible, students should select volunteer opportunities that will allow them to explore their academic and career pathways.  This will give students valuable skills related to the prospective pathways as well as insight into whether or not they wish to continue in the field or not.
