PEI Association of NewComers

The PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada (PEIANC) was incorporated in 1993 as a non-profit charitable organization. Our mandate is to provide short-term settlement services, and long-term inclusion and community integration programs for new immigrants in the province of Prince Edward Island.

The Association speaks publicly on immigrant issues and advocates on behalf of newcomers.

First generation Canadians serve on the volunteer Board of Directors. New immigrants are also employed as staff members of the organization and contracted to provide interpretation and translation services.
