Core ServicesCore ServicesWe want to ensure all newcomers have a chance to settle in, learn the languages, and get connected to their new community, all while staying connected with their friends and family back home. Settlement ServicesThe Canadian story is one of immigration; from this we have learned that our nation’s success comes from building on the contributions of newcomers, adding their individuality and strengths to our own. MAGMA acts as a bridge to ensure that newcomers feel connected, confident and integrated into their new community. We believe that having a place to live is just the start of truly feeling at home—not only a roof overhead, but a place filled with people fully participating in a new Canadian life.

We therefore build fluency in a choice of English or French, providing free classroom learning and informal gatherings to practice newfound skills and connect with new friends and neighbours. Through language, we all connect. We bring the languages of Canada to newcomers. They bring the languages of the world to Greater Moncton. Being able to speak with the world broadens our international network, opening new lines of communication, which expand commerce and opportunity. That’s how the world comes together.
