The City of Lethbridge, like many communities across the country, has been impacted by complex social issues including a drug crisis and increased homelessness. This is something that is concerning to our entire community and has affected the health and safety of our residents. These challenges span many demographics, involve a multitude of social issues, and are managed across several government jurisdictions. Solutions aren’t simple but we are proud of the tremendous efforts over the last 12 months as we partnered with the Government of Alberta and community stakeholders to improve our city.
The City of Lethbridge, working together with Lethbridge Family Services, is making sure our newest neighbours feel right at home. The newcomer program initiative is all about helping new residents get to know their new community.
