Newcomers to the area can get help from a settlement counsellor. The United Way Perth-Huron, Multicultural Association Perth-Huron and the Centre for Employment and Learning are teaming up for this service.
The counsellor can help with government forms and answer immigration questions. They’ll be available once a month in both Perth and Huron Counties.
Mark Hertzberger is the Project Manager at the Multicultural Association of Perth-Huron.

Those who are getting help through the settlement counsellor will also have access to an intake worker at the Multicultural Association to help them with their other needs.
