[a] The Grant for the Canada-Quebec Accord and contributions to provinces recognize the importance of settlement services that respond to the growing need to help immigrants integrate.

[b] Host funds are used to match newcomers with Canadian volunteers (individuals and groups), who help them settle in and integrate.

[c] The Immigrant Settlement and Adaptation Program provides funds for services such as orientation, paraprofessional counselling, translation, job-finding help, and Enhanced Language Training.

[d] The Resettlement Assistance Program, formerly the Adjustment Assistance Program, helps pay for temporary accommodations, clothing, household effects and living expenses for up to one year for indigent Convention refugees.

[e] The Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada Program provides funds for basic language training in both of Canada’s official languages to help adult immigrants integrate socially, culturally, economically and politically.

[f] Actual expenditures were lower than total authorities by $106.2 million. The lapse is mostly attributable to lower spending on the Canada-Ontario Immigration Agreement which was $63.4 million. It also includes $26.2 million against the grant payment under the Canada-Quebec Accord, which is the variance between the estimated amount and the final adjustment. Other lapses are due to lower spending of $16.6 million in general settlement programs.
