Settlement Assistance

Newcomer Settlement Assistance

The Newcomer Connections Settlement Team helps permanent residents settle successfully in Saint John. Our skilled and experienced settlement workers:

  • Meet with newcomers to find out how best to help them
  • Provide relevant information and guidance
  • Provide relevant life skills training so that newcomers settle successfully in the community
  • Refer newcomers to services and programs that are useful to them
  • Connect newcomers to the community
  • Help newcomer children to register at and settle into their new school and community

The dedicated members of our settlement team work with newcomer clients to create a settlement plan – a detailed description of a person’s goals in various areas of life – and then work together to determine the steps needed to achieve those goals.
