Newcomer Connections

Information & Orientation Sessions

Gain valuable information about different aspects of life in Canada at our Information & Orientation Sessions (I&Os) that can help you settle in southwestern New Brunswick and help you Shine On.

We offer group, family, and one-on-one information & Orientation sessions (I&Os) to equip newcomers with relevant information to settle in Canada and make informed decisions in their life in this country. These sessions are broken down into individual topics, usually featuring specialists in the respective fields, to increase the participants’ detailed knowledge of one subject per session.

Some examples of the I&Os include Fire prevention, filing income taxes, Winter in New Brunswick, housing in Canada, healthcare system, pharmacies, oral hygiene, community programs in southwestern New Brunswick, purchasing a house in New Brunswick, cultures around various observances, banking in Canada, Credit Scores and building savings, and so much more.


Our I&Os are free to attend and are open to everyone irrespective of their current immigration status, whether a newcomer or an oldcomer.

Looking for a course that can provide all the information about life in Canada? Try Canada School.

Canada School is a go-to crash course on Canadian society and culture for newcomers settling in southwestern New Brunswick. This program is designed to help newcomers from all walks of life ease the burden of adjusting to a new life by offering information about all aspects of the settlement process.
