Weekend wandering is not just a form of recreation and de-stressing. It is also a great opportunity to learn, unexpectedly.
Well you wouldn’t rely on serendipity if you are in the library but finding the right and best resources will surely require you to have luck in your side. I did.
“Welcome to Alberta: Information for Newcomers,” is by far the best newcomer’s guide in Alberta I have ever read. From living to working, you can learn the basics and essential information you’ll need in settling.
Information You Can Find Inside
- Finding a home and work
- Improving English language skills
- Enrolling a child in school
- Getting help
- Applying for social insurance card
- Registering for health care
- Getting a driver’s license
- Travelling in Alberta
How to Get Newcomer’s Guide in Alberta for Free
You can get this and more newcomer’s guide in Alberta in one of the public libraries particularly in The Central Library.
Centre for Newcomers in Northeast Calgary also has many free publications. You may contact the centre for direction and inquiry of the availability of “Information for Newcomers.”
You can also download online through the Alberta Learning Information Service, a website you can also benefit from if you are looking for a job. I found other similar publications while searching the site; devout some time in learning these free, invaluable resources as these might just give you the answers to your endless questions and quests.
Another option is ordering online if you cannot find one but I suggest try visiting first the organizations that I’ve mentioned then you can judge for yourself if it is indeed the best newcomer’s guide in Alberta.
