From the moment you land, we’re there to offer you a warm welcome. We provide essential on-site assistance, connect you with relevant agencies and organizations, and guide you through the initial steps of settling in Calgary and Southern Alberta.  Our goal is to build a trusting relationship with you from day one, fostering a sense of belonging and encouraging you to engage with the community and available resources.

CCIS is a place every immigrant should endeavour to go. Very helpful. Always going above and beyond. Truly the best in this field. They treat every case/client uniquely. I'm so glad for all the help I and my friends received. We were able to settle in as quickly as we did because of CCIS. Thank you!
