Event description

Description

We have a growing community facing labour skills shortages that is dependent on the retention and attraction of newcomers – but how do we work together to ensure we are a welcoming community?

Are you an employer, service provider or local community member looking to understand the challenges newcomers face when settling in a new environment of a rural community? Do you want to learn more on the benefits of having cultural diversity within the community and workplace?

Discovering the challenges services providers and workplaces face when working with newcomers has been a crucial exercise in creating the right resources and tools for more effective communication. Let's turn challenges that are often associated with cultural differences into a source of creativity and innovation and cultivate a welcoming community.

Objectives for the session:​

  • Understand the challenges newcomers face when settling in a new environment of a rural community.

  • Highlight the benefits of having cultural diversity within the community and workplace

  • Build awareness of basic fundamentals in intercultural competency

  • Enhance Community Connections

Working in partnership - New to Grey, Making Grey Bruce Home and the Municipality of Meaford
