Library offers Immigration Services information session

Kamloops Immigration Services to educate public on what it offers

Kamloops Immigration Services (KIS) is holding an information session at the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library, Clearwater branch this weekend to educate the public on its free services.

The event takes place on Jan. 26 at 11 a.m. and no registration is required.

“KIS provide free services for immigrants including assistance with federal and provincial programs and services, community support and referrals, and navigating the health system, so they’re coming in to talk about what they offer and to answer any questions people in the community might have,” said Kaylea Prime, branch head at Clearwater’s library.

“We’re just working together to create a presentation people new to the area can use, so they know there are resources available to them in Kamloops, in KIS and the library in Clearwater; we can assist them with anything they need as well.”

After the presentation by KIS there will be a question and answer session to provide any other information attendees might have about the organization and its services.

“It’s just welcoming (those new to the area) to the library, the community, the TNRD and they can find out what services are offered to help them transition here and help them with anything they might be needing in that process.”
