about us

AMSSA is a unique province-wide association that strengthens over 70 member agencies as well as hundreds of community stakeholder agencies who serve immigrants and newcomers, and build culturally inclusive communities, with the knowledge, resources and support they need to fulfill their mandates.

AMSSA is funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to provide support to IRCC contract holding agencies in British Columbia.  AMSSA is also funded by the Province of British Columbia to provide support to BC Settlement and Integration Services funded organizations. AMSSA also relies on other funders, donations, and fundraising initiatives for projects and programming. Funding information can be found here.
