Newcomer Support









Once you have arrived in Alberta, the Battle River region helps newcomers settle into the area by providing a range of settlement and orientation programs, including translation and interpretation services, citizenship classes and information sessions through various local associations:

Camrose and District Support Services

Welcome to Alberta: Information for Newcomers is a guide that provides useful information for settling, working and living in the province.

Housing Programs

Finding the right job for you is critical in your relocation, as such, we have developed an employment section of the website called, “Working Here”. In this section, you will find information and tools for your career search and development, as well as employment support organizations and programs.
