Newcomer Services

If you are considering Alberta as a place to work and live, Alberta’s economic growth has opened up many opportunities for immigrants to start a new life. Here, we can provide you with information about the immigration process for Canada and Alberta, as well as about programs and services designed to help you before and after you arrive.

The Language Training Program (LTP) Call for Proposals for Innovative Projects grant funding is now open!

This funding helps to research, develop and pilot innovative approaches to language training to assist immigrants to integrate into Alberta. Funding priorities include e-learning in ESL and occupational language needs for internationally trained immigrants.

Alberta Settlement Outcomes survey

A telephone survey was conducted in Spring 2012 with more than 1,000 adult immigrants. The survey helps the provincial government, stakeholders and service providers better understand immigrant experiences in Alberta, assess the impact of settlement and integration services, identify needs and gaps and help inform next steps.

In collaboration with our service-providing partners, we will continue to provide the support newcomers need to help them integrate successfully into their new communities.
