AMSSA has compiled two glossaries of terms to help British Columbia’s immigrant settlement sector navigate the language frequently used by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).
Frontline Settlement Worker Glossary – For use by front line settlement staff in their day to day work with clients.
Grants & Contributions Glossary – For use by program managers and directors when negotiating grants and contributions agreements.
Sources: AMSSA has reviewed and centralized the most important key terms from a multitude of CIC sources. All definitions can be found on CIC’s Help Centre Glossary, Facts and Figures Glossary, or Annex A of the Negotiating Your Contribution Agreement with CIC document. AMSSA’s previous Glossary of Terms can be found on the WelcomeBC Glossary of Terms page.
