Canadian Orientation Abroad

The Canadian Orientation Abroad (COA) program is an overseas orientation initiative funded by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in over 40 countries across the globe. COA is offered to visa-ready migrants to Canada, including refugees, economic immigrants, and family class immigrants. COA provides newcomers with relevant, accurate, consistent and timely information needed to make informed settlement decisions.
