Welcome to Ontario!

As a newcomer youth, there's a lot for you to learn and experience in Ontario. This site is your one-stop-shop for information you can access from the safety and privacy of your computer or smartphone. We want you to have a better understanding of what it's like to study here, to work here, and the rights and services you're entitled. You'll be coming of age in a completely new place, probably far from the people you grew up with. We want to support you as you transition into your new life in Canada.

We're constantly updating our content by asking newcomer youth across Ontario what kind of information they would like to see on this site. Our articles are divided into the following categories:

  • Daily Life
  • School
  • Work
  • Immigration
  • Health

If there's anything missing that you'd like to see on here, please let us know by sending us an email us at newyouth@ocasi.org.

Ask a Question

Another great way to find information is by going on over to our Question & Answer page. There, you can anonymously ask a question that's specific to your particular circumstance. You can also browse through questions other youth in Ontario have asked, and see if you share any experiences with them.

Happy browsing, and remember to reach out if you need additional support!
