The Connecting Canada project believes that if more immigrants knew about opportunities to live, work, and grow in smaller urban and rural communities before they arrived in Canada, more of them would choose to start their Canadian journeys there.
By introducing pre-arrival immigrants to community members and employers who are motivated to hire immigrants, Connecting Canada helps pre-arrival immigrants learn more about the wide range of communities they could choose to settle in and the services they can access to help them.
Over the last two years, we’ve worked alongside communities and employers across Canada, and we’re now accelerating that work. Connecting Canada is working with communities across Canada to help pre-arrival immigrants take advantage of the benefits to starting their Canadian journeys in a smaller community.
ACCES Employment’s research partner, the Social Research Demonstration Corporation of Canada, will actively evaluate this program to map, track, and create best practices and knowledge to help service providers and decision makers craft more effective services and policy.
