Learning to live and work together as Canadians in our multicultural context is a significant undertaking for local businesses, communities, and churches. This seminar provides practical insights for those wanting to reach out and connect with the nations who have moved into our neighbourhoods, and examines how New Canadians also have missional roles as agents of community transformation.
