Does immigration have a positive impact on our communities?
The Welcoming Communities Coalition (WCC) would answer that question with a resounding “Yes!”
The WCC, with the podcast Holding Heritage, has interviewed four business owners in the Valley who immigrated to Canada. These four residents talked to the coalition about the challenges and surprises they experienced settling and finding employment, why they decided to own and operate a local business and the ways in which they were welcomed and supported as they made this community their new home.
