A community where all can belong and grow.
Helping immigrants build a future in Nova Scotia.
ISANS recognizes the key role of immigrants in Canadian society. We provide a wide range of services to immigrants, from refugee resettlement to professional programs, from family counselling to English in the Workplace. We are the largest immigrant-serving agency in Atlantic Canada, with over 270 staff members from more than 64 countries. We offer services in an inclusive manner, respectful of, and sensitive to, diversity. We make partnership, professionalism, and accountability a priority in every aspect of our work.
We want to acknowledge that we are on unceded traditional Mi’kmaq territory and we are grateful for the Peace and Friendship treaties. At ISANS, as we work to settle newcomers to Nova Scotia, we honour and respect the Indigenous people of this land.
