Alone in Canada: 21 Ways to Make it Better is a self-help guide for single newcomers developed by a team at CAMH.
The guide is designed to help single new immigrants and refugees adjust to living in a new society as quickly and easily as possible.
It provides suggestions on how to deal with 21 of the most common issues encountered by newcomers including how to overcome culture shock and isolation, cope with stress and discrimination, learn English, establish and manage new relationships and enjoy new experiences.
The primary goal of this booklet is to decrease the amount of post-migration stresses, facilitate resettling in Canada and promote physical and mental health of single newcomers.

Alone in Canada will be of interest to agencies serving newcomers such as settlement agencies, ESL and LINC programs, health services, international schools/colleges, adult learning centres and immigrant women centres.

The booklet can be accessed in several ways.

All 21 languages are now available in print form. The booklet is free but there will be a $3.00 charge to cover shipping & handling.
