Do you have questions about how refugees arrive and are settled in Sault Ste. Marie? Do you want to know more about the growing communities of newcomers in our city? Would you like to know how the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program works, and what it will mean for our community?
The Local Immigration Partnership invites you to attend an information session on Thursday, December 5 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Russ Ramsay Room, third floor, Civic Centre. This session was originally scheduled for last Wednesday, but was postponed due to the weather.
The information session will feature a panel of community leaders and specialists who will answer questions about international students, the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program, the refugee resettlement program, the community’s overall immigration strategy, and Canadian immigration processes in general.
“Many people have questions and assumptions about immigration in our community,” says Adrian DeVuono, LIP Project Coordinator. “This information session aims to bring clarity, openness and transparency to immigration programs and processes so that everyone has an understanding of how they work and why they’re important for our community. We want people to know that we have a plan and that we’re confident this community can increase its diversity to the benefit of everyone.”
The information session is a unique opportunity for citizens to learn, ask questions and engage in an open dialogue about an issue that will play a major role in shaping the identity of Sault Ste. Marie. All are welcome and invited to attend.
