Parenting Resources

Bringing your family to Canada is a wonderful opportunity, but settling into a new community as a family can present some challenges.  In your home country you may have had the support of family members, aunts, uncles and cousins to help you with a newborn or when a child is sick or simply to give you a free night out as a couple.  In Fredericton it is important to use the community resources available and build a new strong network of support.

Community Resources

The Multicultural Association of Fredericton has a number of community programs that are open to spouses and children of international students.
