Why Immigration Matters 


Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is working on an initiative called Immigration Matters that combines storytelling and facts to dispel common myths about immigrants and refugees, and promotes positive engagement between Canadians and newcomers.  The goal? To raise awareness about the importance of immigration to Canada’s communities! Stay tuned for more details. #immigrationmatters




The Centre for Newcomers delivers a variety of programs, workshops and information sessions to meet the diverse needs of immigrants and refugees.  You can find detailed information under each of the menu items on the left.
