Community Connections

Updated June 3, 2022

Effective June 1, the ANC has lifted vaccination requirements. Mask-wearing in ANC premises is no longer required, but we continue to strongly recommend the use of masks, distancing, and other infection control measures. 


The Community Connections Program engages citizens, immigrants and refugees to create meaningful community connections in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Program assists immigrants adapt to life in Canada by matching them with local volunteers who provide assistance with learning English, establishing social connections, and integrating into their new community.

Volunteers support many ANC programs, including:

  • Newcomer Match Program
  • Academic Tutor Program
  • Fresh Start Breakfast program at ESL Learning Centre
  • English as a Second Language (ESL) Volunteer Tutor Program
  • After-School Program
  • ESL Conversation Circle Program
  • Women’s/Men’s/Youth/Young Adult/Senior’s/Stay-at-Home Mothers’ Groups
  • Special Events/Activities

There are many ways that an individual can become involved with the Association for New Canadians as a volunteer. Please browse through the volunteer information to learn more about the various volunteer opportunities and how to become a volunteer.
