Collectively Creating Impact


Welcome to Gateway—an exciting and innovative newcomer initiative that helps immigrants and refugees to Alberta navigate their new home successfully. Gateway aims to create better connections. Better connections for newcomers to support service agencies. Better connections between partner agencies to complement each other. Better connections to share and learn from each other to elevate sector excellence.

Gateway is a community of collaborative partners. Gateway features a standardized client needs assessment, personalized planning, and referrals methodology that is used and shared across participating agencies. Gateway offers newcomers one landing place to connect them to a variety of services in their community that are right for them.

The Newcomer Perspective


Newcomers are often overwhelmed with available choices and lack of clear direction from newcomer service agencies upon arriving in their new homes. With Gateway, newcomers no longer need to navigate confusing amounts of services, attend unnecessary appointments, or endure the frustration of repeating their story.
