N.B. investing in supporting newcomers to the province

The New Brunswick government is putting $500,000 into Atlantic Human Services Inc. over two years, to help the company support newcomers in the Saint John region.

Labour Minister Donald Arseneault says the government wants to help newcomers get on their feet and provide them with the resources they need to settle in the province and find employment.

The funding will help the company develop employment action plans and provide employment counselling services to the newcomers.
