These documents will provide you our main research findings to articulate newcomers’ experiences and need, covering:

  • How Richmond Service organizations respond and share their concern for newcomer needs.
  • The identification of challenges and  opportunities exist to collaborate on the integration of initiatives with multiple stakeholders
  • Proposal on potential actions and points of reflection for the next steps in strategy development

We are more than happy to present our detailed research findings to our community partners and local business in Richmond and Metro Vancouver.
