In response to the ongoing pandemic, the new Calgary East Zone Newcomers Collaborative (CENC) has created a rapid response specifically to help newcomers and ethnocultural communities with ongoing COVID-19 related needs. The cultural brokers provide support in 20+ languages with referrals to more than 16 agencies.
