Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) Supports

Updated August 12, 2021

The ANC remains vigilant against the risk of COVID-19. 

As a direct service provider, we are continuing most of our current COVID-19 protocols on all ANC premises.

The one exception is that our offices are now readily open to the public, and drop-in services is more available. We continue to encourage that visitors make appointments, but it is no longer required.

All other COVID-19 preventative measures remain in effect. Staff members continue to wear masks and we ask that visitors to our office do so as well.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the ANC staff member you work with, or you can email us at information@ancnl.ca. If you are unsure where to direct your inquiry, please phone our main reception number in St. John’s at 709-722-9680 or visit https://www.ancnl.ca/contact-us/.

Please download COVID Alert, Canada’s free COVID-19 exposure notification app. It can alert you and your family to possible exposures before you have symptoms: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/covid-alert.html
