Mission

Mission

International Social Service Canada is a non-profit agency that provides linkages to social service agencies worldwide.

As part of an international network, ISS Canada helps resolve individual and family problems resulting from the movement of people across national borders.

Our Mission

The mission of ISS Canada reflects the objectives of International Social Service, a network of National Branches, Affiliated Bureaus and Correspondents that facilitates communication among social services in different countries in order to resolve socio-legal problems of individuals and families resulting from migration and international mobility. This objective is realized through the management of cases referred for intercountry services in the ISS network. ISS Canada is the centre for referrals involving Canada. ISS also investigates and reports on the conditions and consequences of migrations from an international standpoint in order to bring about appropriate safeguards and remedies. ISS Canada cooperates with federal and provincial government departments in the development and promotion of national and international policies and conventions related to the protection of children and adults.
