Enriching communities: #ImmigrationMatters to Canada
May 28, 2021
Canada’s Immigration Matters initiative, presented by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), looks at how immigration strengthens Canada.
This initiative uses storytelling to inspire newcomers to Canada and also promote their positive engagement in the community. The purpose is to foster balanced and informed conversations about immigrants in communities across Canada.
The contributions of immigrants is even more evident during the pandemic in many sectors across the economy. Canada’s healthcare system relies on immigrants to keep Canadians safe and healthy. Other industries, such as information technology companies and farmers and food producers, also rely on the talent of newcomers to maintain supply chains and expand their businesses.
The Immigration Matters initiative provides comprehensive information about how Canada’s immigration system works, how immigration contributes to various fields such as sports, business and healthcare, the role of immigration in local economies and much more. Click here for more information.
