Reception, Orientation and Assessment Centre

We welcome and introduce newly arrived Canadians to our schools and communities through the Reception, Orientation and Assessment Centre.

Before you start school, you need a language assessment and an interview so that we can recommend the best programs and placements for you.

You will also be introduced to the City of London as well as the resources and services that are available to you.

To visit the Reception, Orientation and Assessment Centre, call 519-452-2000 extension 61402 or email jenn.shields@tvdsb.ca.

Settlement Workers in Schools

Settlement workers play an important role in welcoming newly arrived Canadians to our community by reaching out to parents and students to help them with their needs.

They provide newcomer families and students with information on:

  • Learning English
  • Looking for a job
  • Housing
  • Finding a doctor or dentist
  • Rights and responsibilities
  • Other settlement needs

The Settlement Workers in Schools program is provided by Citizenship and Immigration Canada and involves three community agencies; the London Cross Cultural Learner Centre, LUSO Community Services and South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre.
