Enhancing regional capacity to integrate newcomers
PNSG is a community collaborative that engages service providers and stakeholders to coordinate services that facilitate newcomer settlement and integration
As a local immigration partnership, PNSG conducts community-level strategic planning, stakeholder engagement, communications, research, policy formulation and project management – to improve social and economic outcomes for Peel newcomers, immigrants and refugees.
PNSG is a project of United Way Greater Toronto and is funded by Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Region of Peel and UWGT.
Peel Immigration Web Portal
The Peel Immigration Web Portal is Peel Region’s one-stop for settlement information – what you need to know before you arrive, to live, learn and work here
Need to locate newcomer services?
Find a variety of priority newcomer services near you by using the Community Services Map. Select the services your require, whether language, employment, counselling, healthcare or others.
Need newcomer data?
The Newcomer Profile Tool provides useful information and data to those looking to find out more about the Region of Peel, Brampton, Caledon, Mississauga, and the people that call the Region home. It provides frequently used data from the 2016 Census in a more user-friendly format than spreadsheets. The tool was created by the Peel Data Centre.
PNSG publishes reports on community consultations and research that identify newcomer settlement priorities, issues and trends and help decision-makers make evidence-based decisions that influence community efforts to integrate newcomers:

Advocacy: Co-Designing an Equitable and Inclusive Health System in Peel
As part of our work on the Anti-Black Racism & Systemic Discrimination collaborative in Peel, PNSG participated on a healthcare sub-table that co-authored a February 2021 health equity position statement that collected first-person narratives, regional population-level statistics and recommendations for greater service and system co-design, as well as understanding how equity can be embedded in funding decisions.
