Settlement and Orientation

Updated January 24, 2022

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 province has moved to a modified Level Four alert, and so we have strengthened those protocols.

Many of our staff are not regularly working in their offices. Meetings and appointments are being arranged virtually (telephone or computer) where possible. In-person meetings must be arranged in advance (by appointment only) and will be conducted under strict COVID-19 precautions. Drop-in services are  not available at this time. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to the ANC staff member you work with, or you can email us at 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

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:
