What is the My New St. John’s Expo?

This event is an opportunity for newcomers to St. John’s to connect with their community as community groups from all across the city come together to help newcomers integrate and feel welcomed. It’s also an opportunity for current residents to discover opportunities and services they weren’t previously aware of.

What can I expect?

Attendees can expect to connect with groups and organizations that provide services to the St. John’s community. This event is not a job fair, but a networking and learning opportunity to help newcomers feel more acquainted with the city. It is also a great place to meet other newcomers who are sharing similar experiences.
