The tri-community is thrilled to announce the launch of the updated Newcomer Guide, a comprehensive resource designed specifically for newcomers and international students. Considered a go-to guide for all things Dieppe, Moncton, and Riverview, this resource offers access to important telephone numbers and information on settlement agencies, government services, housing, communications services, money and banking, health and safety, and education. The guide also includes detailed sections on getting around in the area and finding employment, as well as an overview of taxation in Canada.

“Our region has seen record immigration in the past two years,” says Moncton Mayor Dawn Arnold. “Newcomers have been, and continue to be, a vital part of Greater Moncton’s growth story and it is important to continue prioritizing their integration and belonging in our community.”

The tri-community has been particularly successful in attracting francophone immigrants.

“Our region attracted 67 per cent of all French-speaking permanent resident admissions to the province in 2021,” says Dieppe Mayor Yvon Lapierre. “The Newcomer Guide is offered in both official languages, a testament to our unique positioning allowing us to attract francophone newcomers.”

The region is also seeing more individuals and families staying in the region long-term.

“Overall, immigrant retention rates in the Moncton Census Metropolitan Area have been improving in recent years relative to the national average,” says Riverview Mayor Andrew J. LeBlanc. “This speaks to our quality of life, strong programming, opportunities for work and play, and ability to integrate newcomers into the social fabric.”

The Newcomer Guide can be found on the Immigration Greater Moncton website.
