Immigration in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge
Immigration transforms social and cultural relations on personal and community levels, involving relationships within immigrant groups, between immigrant groups, and between immigrants and the host society. Building a sense of community is now a key challenge for Canadian communities, and may be a critical factor in their overall success.
You are invited to join this conversation to:
- Increase awareness and understanding of settlement and integration issues, demographics and immigration trends in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.
- Learn who the direct and indirect service providers are to the immigrant and newcomer population
- Discuss what is currently working and how to improve services to the newcomer/immigrant population
