Cities of Migration resources launch during Welcoming Week—an international celebration of inclusive communities. Running from September 12 to 20, 2020, #WelcomingWeek is an annual event of Welcoming International, a coalition that advances inclusion in communities around the world.
Canada is now a member of Welcoming International through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and the #immigrationmatters campaign. During Welcoming Week, organizations and communities are encouraged to share their stories of inclusion and welcoming on social media, tagging this year’s theme #CreatingHomeTogether. During #WelcomingWeek, Cities of Migration encourages all to share strategies for #ImmigrantFutures and join us in making welcoming communities for immigrants a critical economic development strategy!
