Newcomer Integration Toolkit

The Newcomer Intrgation Toolkit provides physical and human resources to build the capacity of community groups to support immigrant integration and social inclusion. As such, the toolkit includes practical supports and best practices for social service agencies on the topics of:

  • · Diversity and cross-cultural communication training
  • · Developing immigrant-friendly policies for workplaces
  • · Advocating for the benefits of immigrant attraction and retention
  • · Creating spaces and services that are accessible and welcoming to newcomers.

CRRC staff are available to assist agencies in determining priority areas and implementation measures. We also provide customized training sessions for management, staff and volunteers.
