ANCIE Overview

AMSSA’s Newcomer Children Information Exchange (ANCIE) provides information and resources for BC service providers, educators, policy makers and the general public on newcomer children – kids aged 0-12 years from immigrant, refugee and/or temporary resident families.

It features:

  • A searchable database of useful research reports, educational materials and weblinks
  • Theme pages that provide a general overview of key issues affecting newcomer children
  • An archive of the ANCIE Bulletin, our quarterly newsletter

ANCIE has been created to support the work of AMSSA’s Newcomer Children’s Champion Program, an initiative to promote and advance the interests and well-being of BC’s newcomer children. This program is supported and funded by the United Way of the Lower Mainland.
