Supporting Organizations Supporting Immigrants

The Atlantic Region Association of Immigrant Serving Agencies (a.k.a. ARAISA) is a non-profit umbrella organization that has been providing support to the settlement and integration sector in Atlantic Canada for the past 25 years.

ARAISA currently counts 16 Anglophone and Francophone member organizations in the provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The number of members is on the rise, with an increase of 71% in 2018.

We are a growing organization and are continually striving to increase representation of the sector through our membership.

Our ultimate goal is to help settlement and integration organizations in the region fulfill their mission and help newcomers create a new life in Atlantic Canada.

At ARAISA, members are our prime concern. We are here to support them.

As a result, direct and indirect service providers contribute to the creation of a more welcoming and inclusive Atlantic Canada. And, we are here to help!
