The City of Charlottetown has opened registration for the first Newcomer Orientation Session, being held on Thursday, September 22, from 5 p.m. until 7:15 p.m., beginning and concluding at City Hall (199 Queen St.).
This early fall session is the first of three Newcomer Orientation Sessions that will be held throughout the fall/winter.
The first Newcomer Orientation Session will feature two City Hall departments: Human Resources and Parks and Recreation. The Human Resources Department will explain hiring practices, on-the-job training opportunities and provide interview tips. Parks and Recreation staff will join participants on a bus tour of City Parks, trails, and Community Centres and provide information about programs and events. This orientation session, as well as subsequent sessions, will also include a Department Program and Services Information Fair and a Meet and Greet with Mayor Clifford Lee, City Councillors, Department Staff and Newcomer Ambassadors. This is your opportunity to learn more about your community, your ward, and the role of your Council.
The Newcomer Orientation Sessions are free and open to newcomers who have recently moved to Charlottetown. Children’s activities and refreshments will be provided.
Space is limited for the Orientation Sessions and all participants must pre-register online prior to the deadline of September 20 at 4 p.m. To register, visit: citycharlottetown.wufoo.com/forms/w1tgsrhn0h6mja2/ .
