Welcoming communities: A toolkit for local governments

Canada's economic future is tied directly to our ability to successfully attract, settle, and retain immigrants and refugees. Still, newcomers face significant barriers to success and are falling behind their non-immigrant counterparts. Welcoming communities, able to provide adequate housing, accessible transit, employment, language and cultural supports and services are essential to providing every opportunity for newcomers to succeed.

Municipalities have continued to expand their role through the national efforts to resettle Syrian refugees in 2016―coordinating local efforts, providing information portals, offering free transit and recreation services, and finding innovative ways to support successful integration.
