Labrador West now has a satellite office of the Association for New Canadians.
This office is running out of their new office space located on the ground floor of the Bruno Plaza in Labrador City.
The office is staffed by Jordan Moyles, who is the regional settlement co-ordinator in Labrador West. The office is open Monday to Friday during normal business hours.
The Association for New Canadians (ANC) is a provincial and federal government supported, non-profit, community based organization that is dedicated to the delivery of settlement and integration services for immigrants and refugees in Newfoundland and Labrador.
For nearly 40 years, the ANC has delivered programs and services in Atlantic Canada that support all aspects of newcomer integration, ranging from settlement information and orientation to language learning, employment and public education initiatives.
The ANC provides a large network of settlement support services. They provide an initial needs assessment and the required referral services as well as settlement planning services.
Information and orientations about life in Canada and outreach and community engagement activities are also provided. Health and wellness referrals are included as well.
Support for newcomer parents and children in the Canadian school system and other educational information support is also delivered by ANC.
Employment and career services as well as supports for the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) with program employers and employees is also delivered.
Their supports for privately sponsored refugees and co-sponsored groups as well as assistance with filling out forms and applications is also a much needed service provided. Efforts are also included to help with volunteer opportunities and the necessary initiatives required.
Distance and outreach services including employment supports and public education and outreach initiatives are also delivered through a number of programs.
All of these programs through ANC are necessary and positive initiatives required for newly arriving Canadians, as well as for new Canadians who have been here for a while. This organization is also, through their initiatives, providing many employers valuable tools to help any new employees the necessary tools to integrate our new Canadians into our communities and workplaces as informed and supported as possible in Canada. A win, win for all.
