Many small to medium cities across Canada face population declines and an uncertain future. Cities of Migration launches the Immigrant Futures Toolkit to help Canada’s smaller cities, towns and regions address population declines through immigrant attraction and retention strategies.

The Immigrant Futures Toolkit is a comprehensive set of online resources that will assist city and community leaders make the case for immigration to be adopted as a critical strategy for local economic development. The resources draw from best practices collected from communities across Canada and internationally and show that there is much that a community can do to attract and retain immigrants. Easy-to-follow guides and examples help leaders learn from the success of others and get up to speed quickly on how to initiate a planning process in their own community.

What does the Immigrant Futures Toolkit include?

The Toolkit includes a multi-stakeholder planning framework and resources that will help small cities identify and leverage existing community assets, consider new ways to create awareness, develop partnerships and advance co-investment strategies that can help build a welcoming economy.
