Who we are:
The Immigrant Arrival Centre is an initiative of the Calgary Newcomers Collaborative (CNC) powered by Gateway and the Calgary Airport Authority. Prompted by the influx of Ukrainian nationals to Calgary but designed to support all newcomers, the centre is a booth where immigrants and refugees can ask questions, seek support, and establish connections to services immediately upon arrival.
The Calgary Newcomers Collaborative powered by Gateway is a collaboration between Action Dignity, Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth, Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association, Centre d’Accueil pour Nouveaux Arrivants Francophones, Centre for Newcomers, Immigrant Services Calgary, La Cité des Rocheuses, Portail De L’Immigrant Association, and The Immigrant Education Society.
