About Us

Who We Are

We are…

  • An umbrella organization
  • A representative, a hub, and an amplifier of information for our member agencies and newcomers
  • A centre for knowledge, expertise, and leadership

The Alberta Association of Immigrant Serving Agencies (AAISA) is a regionally and nationally recognized leader in the settlement and integration sector. We offer the only certification program for Settlement Practitioners in Canada.

As an umbrella organization, we represent immigrant-serving agencies and organizations that work with newcomers across the province. Our mandate is to build sectorial capacity to serve newcomers by providing access to relevant and meaningful professional development opportunities, stakeholder-informed research, act as an influential policy voice, and to advance the standards of excellence in professional settlement practice.
