Who We Are


TFW Hub is a Prairie-wide collaboration between the Calgary Catholic Immigration Society (CCIS) and 14 leading service providers in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba with a mandate to provide free comprehensive services for temporary foreign workers across the Prairies. This initiative is funded by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and serves as a hub of information, services and resources that address the diverse needs of temporary foreign workers holding work permits under the Temporary Foreign Workers Program, Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program, International Mobility Program, and Post-Graduate Work Permit Program.

Three umbrella organizations, the Alberta Association of Immigrant Serving Agencies (AAISA), the Saskatchewan Association of Immigrant Settlement Integration Agencies (SAISIA) and the Manitoba Association of Newcomer Serving Organizations (MANSO) provide capacity building and support to the partner organizations involved in this initiative.


What We Do










Our support workers assist in areas such as:

  • Case management
  • Income support
  • Settlement and health referrals
  • Assistance when applying for benefits
  • Interpretation services
  • Short-term shelter & housing
  • Food security, clothing
  • Transportation needs

Our mission is to empower temporary foreign workers (TFWs) throughout their settlement and integration process in Canada. We offer comprehensive no-cost support, including information on rights and responsibilities, case management, emergency assistance, and access to exclusive events. By leveraging existing partnerships, we aim to provide effective and coordinated support to TFWs and help them build capacity to aid their successful transition into their new home and workplace.

Our free programs and activities aim to:

  • Leverage educational activities and materials to increase the awareness and understanding of migrant workers regarding their rights and responsibilities.
  • Empower migrant workers to exercise their rights by providing up-to-date information on the services available to them and assisting them to access these services.
  • Build welcoming communities and foster the inclusion of migrant workers through social, cultural, and recreational events.
  • Support migrant workers during emergency situations.
  • Build new partnerships and leverage existing partnerships/networks to support migrant workers.
  • Develop and implement coordinated approaches among community organizations and build their capacity and knowledge to provide resources and services to migrant workers.
