Webinar: Immigrant Futures - Regional Strategies for Northern Attraction and Retention

November 18, 1:00pm EST

Cities of Migration presents this webinar as part of their Immigrant Futures project.

From Atlantic to Western and Northern regions, smaller and rural communities across Canada (and the U.S.) are facing the unprecedented challenges of demographic change and population decline. The Northern Policy Institute responds to these challenges in a new report series. Its Northern Newcomer Strategy offers a regional analysis of local policies and programs that can attract new immigrants and revitalize small and medium sized communities across Northern Ontario. In Thunder Bay and North Bay, Ontario, city and community leaders have identified immigration as an economic growth strategy with potential to reverse population decline and meet local demand for skilled and professional trades.

What makes a community "outside the Big City" attractive to newcomers? Is there a regional recipe for building open, inclusive communities where everyone thrives today and for the long-term? Join us online to learn more about how the Northern Policy Institute, Thunder Bay Multicultural Association and North Bay & District Multicultural Centre are shifting policy into practice with a dynamic vision for the prosperity and well-being of their community futures.
