Learning about the Canadian community and its education system is part of the settlement process. The SWIS (Settlement Workers in Schools) assist newcomer students and their families to settle into their new school. The Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) Program is an initiative funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The SWIS program places settlement workers from Settlement service providers, and some of the Saskatchewan Regional Newcomer Gateways in elementary and high schools that have high numbers of newcomer students in the province. Currently, there are nine service providers that provide SWIS program in schools across the province.
