Funded by The City of Edmonton’s Family Community and Support Services (FCSS), the New Neighbours Program has been crucial in supporting newcomers in Edmonton since 1989. In our New Neighbours Program, newcomers start their settlement in Edmonton in a great way through meeting new people, making new friends, knowing about different cultural and helpful resources in Edmonton while enjoying various social, international and recreational activities in a safe and enjoyable environment.
