Immigration, Integration and Inclusion in Ontario Cities

Immigration, Integration and Inclusion in Ontario Cities - Erin Tolley

Ontario receives the majority of newcomers to Canada, and its cities are a locus of diversity. Recognizing that the building and sustenance of 'welcoming communities' is as much a local project as a national and provincial one, this volume explores the activities of municipal governments in Ontario as well as those of a number of other important 'social forces' situated at the local level. Twelve city case studies are guided by a common template to facilitate comparisons and allow for an overall mapping of the players and a better estimation of the investments — human and financial — that are required for the successful integration and inclusion of newcomers and minorities in Ontario cities. The conclusion provides a sense of the relative success (or failure) that Ontario cities have had in the creation of welcoming and inclusive communities
