Somali Immigrant Aid Organization (S.I.A.O) is a non-profit community-based organization that is committed in addressing the immigration, integration, education, health, housing, social service, culture, and economic development needs of Somali Canadians and other immigrants in Canada through programs, service and advocacy.
The goal of S.I.A.O is to ensure that all service users, regardless of race, gender, colour, country of origin, or length of residence in Canada have equal access to social services, education, employment, skills training and other relevant programs.
We meet the goal by providing individualized programs that are designed to meet the personal goal of the service user. These programs include: Settlement Counselling, Job Placement, English as a Second Language and literacy classes, Advocacy, Information and referral, and interpretation services for clients.
Somali Immigrant Aid Organization is dedicated to providing quality and inclusive settlement support services to newcomers.
