The Support Networks for Rural Newcomers to Alberta Research Project aims to improve the efficiency in the settlement, language and integration system in rural areas within Alberta that lack formal settlement programming through the creation of a coordinated and mutually supportive network of municipalities. The Support Networks for Rural Newcomers to Alberta project is designed to improve the capacity of Alberta’s rural municipalities to support newcomers through a thorough needs and asset assessment of rural municipalities. The project will look at and assess the unique contexts of key municipalities and will also facilitate meaningful collaboration amongst rural communities.
