We've Changed Our Name


Posted: 01/10/2021 | Updated: 04/10/2021

As of October 1, 2021, PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada (PEIANC) has officially changed its name and will from now on be known as Immigrant and Refugee Services Association PEI - IRSA.

The new name —Immigrant & Refugee Services Association PEI - IRSA— better reflects who we are, what we do, and most importantly, who our clients are.

All of our staff, services, programs, and activities will continue as they have in the past, providing services to new immigrants in our province - settlement services for individuals and families, employment assistance to those seeking employment, and organizing community engagement and integration events that bring the new and established Islanders together.

Our new domain name is irsapei.ca and all staff can be reached at their original email addresses (@peianc.com) or at the new domain (@irsapei.ca). After October 1, 2021, any communications from staff to clients will be coming from the @irsapei.ca.

We look forward to continuing to work with and on behalf of our clients, our many community partners, our volunteers, and everyone who has made PEI one of the most welcoming places for new immigrants in Canada.
