  • get help finding a place to live, registering your children for school or daycare, finding employment;
  • register for English classes;
  • build your social network with others in the community;
  • and lots more…

Programs

We run a number of weekly and monthly programs for newcomers including an:

  • Immigrant Women’s Support Group
  • Newcomer Girls Group
  • Monthly information sessions

Community
We are committed to making Antigonish and Guysborough diverse, inclusive, and welcoming communities where newcomers to Canada want to live and decide to stay! We are involved with many community organizations and initiatives dedicated to this goal, and can arrange workshops on these topics for your group, organization, or workplace.  We provide outreach services by appointment to newcomers throughout Guysborough and Antigonish counties.
