Welcome to the Small Centre Toolkit – an information hub for newcomer-serving agencies outside of Edmonton and Calgary! 

AAISA recognizes the importance of sharing relevant resources, accurate information, and innovative practices from Alberta’s settlement and integration sector. That is why we created this hub, packed full of small centre-specific resources and tools that are designed to support settlement and integration services in your community and better serve your clients.

From the Alberta Service Map to the resources on collaboration and capacity building, we hope that the constantly updated resources and tools in the Toolkit prove useful to your work.

As this hub will continue to develop and evolve over time, we greatly appreciate referrals to relevant information. If you have any that you would like to share, please email communications@aaisa.ca
