Register for MCAF Services
Established in 1974, the Multicultural Association of Fredericton (MCAF) plays a vital role in establishing communication and fostering understanding between the community, settled immigrants, and newcomers.
Programs and Services
I got a job at MCAF as a settlement worker and I get to work with many refugees from Afghanistan and other countries. My siblings started school and English classes, and are beginning to achieve their goals. Now we are a happy family and our lives are continuing towards hope and happiness.
My name is Asmaa Abdelkader and I immigrated to Canada in 2019. As a cultural broker at MCAF I facilitate the connection between newcomers and community, as well as letting newcomers know their rights and responsibilities by interpreting in different information sessions.
I arrived in Canada in 2019 from Brazil. We received many services from MCAF that helped with our settlement. We registered with MCAF and started ESL classes. The MCAF team supported us with our settlement plan application to obtain Permanent Residency through the Atlantic Immigration Program.
MCAF provided me with information that made pre-arrival easy and our integration into Fredericton a delightful experience. They provided information on commuting, shopping, banking, assistance with filing out taxes, registering for Medicare, internet services, and mobile services.
I learned about Canada and the Canadian labour market and gained experience through the Youth Skills Launch Program at the Multicultural Association of Fredericton Inc. Now, I am working as a Home Support Worker. I can finally enjoy my life and freedom just like any other human being.
