City of Calgary Welcome Ceremony

The City of Calgary is hosting a Welcome Ceremony and Newcomers Fair on Saturday, March 12, 2016 from 1 - 4 pm in the Atrium of the Municipal Building.  The city is expecting to have over 30 kiosks from different service providers and CIES is going to be there to showcase our resources.  

The purpose of the Newcomer Fair is for refugees and their sponsors to:

Learn about available services and resources from The City and the community.
Have an opportunity to speak to representatives from City and community agencies.
Engage with other newcomers and sponsors and build support networks.

CIES has been provided 200 wristbands to be given to clients.  The wristband enables participants to take Calgary transit for free for the day to attend the event and provides access to the Atrium.  All of the kiosks will have Arabic speaking staff.  Additional Arabic speaking interpreters will be on-site to assist if needed.    The wristbands are available at the reception in both locations and given to the people who are interested to attend. See you Saturday!
