AAISA Announces New Membership Model

Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Alberta Association of Immigrant Serving Agencies (AAISA) is a regionally and nationally recognized leader in the settlement and integration sector. AAISA’s mandate is to build sectoral capacity by providing member agencies that serve newcomers access to relevant and meaningful professional development opportunities, to act as a liaison with stakeholders, and provide a centre for knowledge, expertise, and leadership.

Now, for the first time, AAISA is opening up membership beyond the settlement sector. They are welcoming any non-profit organization that works with newcomer Canadians to become part of Alberta’s premiere association for settlement and integration. Members have access to initiatives such as training, professional development, and research designed to build capacity to serve newcomers. Learn more about how to become an AAISA Member.

In further development news, AAISA’s Learning Community is a new online tool containing practical resources and ongoing skill development for professionals working with newcomer Canadians. • Resource Database • Community Forum • Calendar of Events • Professional Development Information and Opportunities. Moreover, the Learning Community is launching with an extensive collection of anti-racism and anti-discrimination resources. Visit aaisalearns.ca to access these resources and more! 

CIES is a proud and long time and member of AASIA and couldn't be happier to see them expanding their reach, as doing so only makes the sector stronger more capable of achieving its goals. Keep up the great work guys!
