What is LASI?

Local Agencies Serving Immigrants (LASI) is a coalition of 11 agencies delivering settlement services to immigrants and refugees in the Ottawa area. LASI members work together to advance the social and economic integration of newcomers through continuous service improvement, implementation of collaborative initiatives and engagement with the broader community.

Over the years, the LASI Coalition has worked together on joint initiatives to support newcomers. The LASI settlement services delivery portal is one such initiative.
