We help immigrants build a future in Nova Scotia.
Immigrants choose Nova Scotia for its opportunities and its welcoming maritime spirit to prosper and grow as new Canadians. From newcomer to lifetime Nova Scotian, Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia (ISANS) charts a path so all can belong and grow.
ISANS is the leading immigrant settlement service agency in Atlantic Canada, serving 10,000+ clients annually in 104 communities across Nova Scotia, through a diversity of services—language, settlement, community integration and employment—both in person and online.
Through our staff, we bring varied languages, different experiences and unique perspectives that inform our client-centered programming. Our services are provided in both of Canada’s official languages-English and French—and in 30+ languages spoken by our many clients. We seek to empower our clients and staff to undertake a collaborative effort to learn and grow together—both personally and professionally—through partnership, professionalism and accountability.
As the front door to many of Nova Scotia’s immigrants, we seek to create a community where all can belong and grow, building a stronger Nova Scotia and Canada for all.
