Welcoming Immigrants and New Residents

St. John’s should be an attractive place for people to come and make a life. But successful settlement and starting a life in St. John’s can be difficult.

Housing and transportation are two areas in which the City can lead [see Affordable Housing, Public Transit, Real Neighbourhoods]. Without stable housing, it is difficult to find jobs, learn a new language, and become a member of a community.

St. John’s can also be difficult place to fit into culturally for new Canadians, but also for people from elsewhere in Canada and even this province. We should do what we can to build a more inclusive self-image [See Inclusion].
