/ Settlement and Orientation
/ Resettlement Assistance Program
RAP is provided to Convention Refugees Abroad and members of the Humanitarian Protected Persons Abroad classes who are admitted to Canada as Government Assisted Refugees. Upon arrival at the airport in St. John’s, Government Assisted Refugees are met by an Association Settlement Counsellor and Interpreter. Newcomers are provided with temporary accommodations at the Association’s Reception House, and a live-in Coordinator welcomes and provides them with information and support. Over the next 4-6 weeks, newcomers participate in an orientation process that provides information about living in Canada, relevant federal and provincial programs, financial issues, laws, rights and responsibilities, health and wellness, education, employment, among other related topics.
The Association for New Canadians is a non-profit, community based organization dedicated to the provision of settlement and integration services for immigrants and refugees to Canada. For over 30 years, the Association for New Canadians has provided settlement assistance as well as programs and services to support all aspects of newcomer integration.
