September 15, 12-3 p.m.: Migrant Routes workshop @ the library
Our increasingly diverse communities and workplaces call for professional development that allows employees to learn about the experiences and challenges that newcomers face when coming to Canada.
The workshop can help you and your organization build a strategy around creating more inclusive spaces for all community members.
What will you learn about?
  • The Canadian immigration system
  • Challenges and barriers newcomers face
  • Strategies to create equitable and welcoming spaces
  • Tools to ensure that policies and practices that seem neutral do not have discrimination built into them
  • Methods to build an inclusive community where all individuals and families are realizing their full potential
Migrant Routes workshops and materials are offered in English or French.  Resources include a DVD documentary that takes participants on a virtual exploration of Franco-African immigrants’ arrival in Alberta and the Karibuni (Ki-Swahili for “Welcome”) Educational Resource Manual that offers information and activities that can help to build understanding about migrant issues, the concept of integration and ways to make positive change towards inclusion.
