Members

The New Brunswick Multicultural Council has 17 dedicated member organizations across the province. 

Settlement agencies help newcomers, immigrants and refugees find the services they need to settle in New Brunswick.

They can support newcomers through the following programs and services:

Pre-arrival Services

The Government of Canada provides free in-person and online services to help newcomers better prepare and adjust to life in Canada. These services can help them with living and working in Canada, accessing education, work experience and professional licenses/certificates recognized, and connecting with employers and with free support services upon arrival.

Learn more about pre-arrival services.

Services offered at arrival

These services are free and are available in multiple languages in communities across New Brunswick. Many agencies also deliver programs for newcomer and refugee youth.

In addition to the general Settlement Services listed above, there are four Refugee Assistance Program (RAP) Agreement holders in NB, through the YMCA Saint John Newcomer Connections, the Multicultural Association of Fredericton, the Multicultural Association of Greater Moncton, and the Multicultural Association of the Chaleur Region.

RAP staff assist with the immediate and short-term needs of new arrivals, including interpretation and translation services, as well as transportation to temporary accommodation.

The Government of Canada, through the Resettlement Assistance Program (RAP), provides financial assistance to Government-Assisted Refugees (GAR) for basic needs such as food, housing, transportation, etc.  The amount varies depending on the number and ages of family members. GAR families receive financial support for a maximum of one year or until they are financially self-sufficient.
