OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Community and collaboration are at the heart of all that the CFN does each and everyday. With the Government of Alberta closing all schools and the City of Calgary declaring a state of emergency, CFN will do our part to protect the safety and health of our community, clients and staff.
The Centre for Newcomers will close it doors to the public as of March 16, but business as usual is still on-going; with full services being offered over the phone, online or through tele-conferencing. People can call us to book times for such appointments, email us or DM us on our social media sites. That said, all onsite workshops and events have been cancelled until further notice.
Despite the closure, we are still here for all those who need us and will continue to work with the City, the Province and the Federal government to ensure the safety of all Calgarians. For a translation of CFNs Closure Message in 15 languages click here to find yours.
