Take un- or underemployed skilled immigrants with tremendous drive and character, but no credit history, no assets, and no success with mainstream lending institutions. Mix in a community that sees incredible potential in its newcomer population and is willing to put their credit where their confidence is. What do you get? Alberta's Immigrant Access Fund (IAF). The IAF Loan Program provides internationally trained newcomers, regardless of occupation or training, with loans of up to $10,000 to help cover costs to get back to work in their field in Canada. While most loans cover training, professional fees, exam expenses, assessments and books, IAF Canada Executive Director Dianne Fehr maintains an IAF loan is for whatever will lead to employment success.

Immigrant Futures Forum: Designing a Welcoming Economy
 
01:32:45
Canada’s strategy to attract immigrants for economic purposes responds to well-established data that show immigration is a positive contributor to economic growth. In Canada’s largest and fastest growing urban regions, this is lived experience. For smaller cities or cities in economic decline, making the connection between immigration and economic development has the potential to offset population loss, address gaps and shifts in the labour market, and generally secure a more equitable distribution of national social and economic capital while reducing pressure on Canada’s largest cities where most immigrants settle. What does a welcoming economy look like? Research suggests newcomer-friendly services and slogans aren’t enough. Immigrant retention depends on positive labour market experiences and a robust local economy. What can local planning councils do to attract and sustain immigrant investment in the social, economic and cultural growth of their cities and regions? To foster new opportunities for innovation and wealth creation? Experts from Canada and the U.S will share research, local experience and great ideas for how cities can leverage the potential of immigrant talent and contribution to benefit both newcomers and receiving communities. Christina Pope, Welcoming America, presents the highly successful welcoming economies strategy developed by Global Detroit in response to the ravages of population decline, industrial change and the 2007-2008 financial crisis. The regional economic revitalization strategy focused on immigration and global connections for the Detroit area quickly evolved into the Welcoming Economies (WE) Global Network of Midwestern rustbelt cities working together to harness the opportunities that immigrants generate for regional growth and job creation. Robyn Webb, Halifax Partnership, shares Halifax’s acclaimed Connector Program, launched to develop the potential of internationally trained professionals by connecting them to established business leaders and their networks. Connector successfully expanded into the international student and local graduate market to broaden the Halifax region’s talent pool, and is now being replicated across the country and internationally. Devon Franklin, Hire Immigrants-Magnet, talks about the movers and shakers who were catalyzed to action in November 2015 as the country prepared to welcome 30,000 refugees. The Syrian Refugee Jobs Agenda Roundtable brings together private, public and institutional employers to develop strategies that increase access to employment and optimize the talent and skills that refugees bring to the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). Tamara Sabarini, Scadding Count Community Centre, shares Business Out of the Box, a community-led social enterprise model that provides a platform for both communities and entrepreneurs to transform underutilized spaces in a neighbourhood into vibrant, lucrative and inclusive markets.

This webinar showcased successful strategies for community engagement, creative mentoring, and promoting immigrant integration through the arts. Presenters from Auckland and Toronto shared innovative ideas about how music, performance and new literary voices are building stronger communities through the arts and changing the way we see ourselves in the city. In Toronto, Diaspora Dialogues, a literary organization supports the creation and presentation of new fiction, poetry, and drama of culturally diverse artists by creating meaningful opportunities for artistic mentorship, performance and by building new audiences for newcomer voices. In Auckland, People in Your Neighbourhood, a project of the British Council New Zealand, puts aspiring artists and performers from diverse communities on stage. The project involves capacity building workshops, online and face to face collaborations and master-classes in creativity and performance. More from Cities of Migration: http://citiesofmigration.ca

Webinar: Sanctuary Cities: Challenges and Opportunities
 
01:08:49
May 24, 2016 Cities of Migration Webinar - "Sanctuary Cities: Challenges and Opportunities" Speakers: • Idil Atak, Assistant Professor, Ryerson University, Toronto • Graham Hudson, Associate Professor, Ryerson University, Toronto • Sonia Lin, General Counsel, Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, New York Webinar Description: The global Sanctuary City movement is growing, with formal and informal networks spreading across the UK, Europe, the US, and now Canada. In some jurisdictions this means formal policies to protect irregular migrants from prosecution. In others, it enshrines the individual’s ‘right to the city’ and ensures access to public services, regardless of immigration status. Elsewhere it is a community-led strategy to promote social inclusion and raise public awareness of the vulnerable. In an age of high mobility and open borders, what they all have in common is a growing number of residents who may be falling through the cracks. This 60-minute webinar that explores sanctuary policies and programs in Toronto and New York, what works and why it’s important, asking: Who does the sanctuary city seek to protect and why? Toronto’s sanctuary city ordinance (Access T.O.) is relatively young (2013), and new research by Idil Atak and Graham Hudson at Ryerson University suggests it’s being rolled out unevenly across city services and institutions, and that the reasons why people are ‘undocumented’ and how they become ‘illegalized’ is poorly understood. New York City’s inclusive approach to city services includes strategies to address the challenges of a large undocumented citizenry– in the short term with programs like the NYC municipal ID card, while the Cities for Citizenship campaign seeks long term solutions by promoting a path to citizenship (legality). Sonia Lin, General Counsel, Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, New York shares practical insights from MOIA’s long experience with undocumented people, offering a welcome counterpoint to Toronto’s ‘start-up’ experience to date.

The Power of Ideas: Arrival City

Doug Saunders, journalist and award-winning author of Arrival City, talks about city neighborhoods that incubate and launch immigrant success: "urban spaces where the transition from poverty occurs, where the next middle class is forged, where the next generation's dreams, movements, and governments are created.[It is here] that serious and sustained investments from governments and agencies are most likely to create lasting and incorruptible benefit." What are the conditions for investment? What works, and what doesn't in arrival cities? Is there a recipe for immigrant success? This talk will be a mighty prelude to the Marketplace of Good Ideas.

Re-Imagining the City: Setting an Agenda for Shared Prosperity

Does city leadership matter? As the level of government closest to the people, local governments are most directly and immediately impacted by the lives, successes and challenges of immigrants. Cities have a range of levers to deploy to create a foundation for future prosperity for all residents. Mayoral voice can be a particularly powerful tool to accelerate the path to inclusion. So, what are progressive city leaders doing to close the gap between the city we have and the city we want?

Webinar - Welcoming Cities: Municipal Leadership on Immigrant Integration
 
01:03:05
In this webinar, participants learned about the power of city-led public service campaigns in Barcelona (Spain) and Sheffield (UK) that create safe, welcoming communities by challenging myths and changing misconceptions about immigrants and refugees. These local responses to anti-discrimination help us understand the role and capacity of local government to integrate migrants and provide equal opportunities for all residents. Participants learned about: In Sheffield, with the support of City Council, the city became the first "City of Sanctuary" in the UK. The movement has been adopted by over 26 cities to dispel the misconceptions around refugees and build a culture of municipal hospitality for people seeking sanctuary. In Barcelona, the City Council's Barcelona Anti-Rumor Network is part of a long-term strategy to improve coexistence among locals and new immigrants. This clever public service campaign uses undercover community 'agents', humour, up-to-date facts and figures to dispel rumours and prejudice about minorities and immigrants.

This webinar focused on strategic city-led initiatives in Antwerp (Belgium) and Waltham Forest (London borough, UK) that strengthen the capacity of city councils, civil society organisations and ordinary citizens to work together for more inclusive communities and strong democratic institutions. This webinar is supported by Open Society Foundations' At Home in Europe Project. Participants learned about these Good Ideas: •In Antwerp, the city council invited Minderhedenforum ('Forum of Ethnic Cultural Communities') to facilitate consultations with the city's ethno-cultural federations, community groups and local residents to encourage dialogue and participation on local policy issues. With an eye on the upcoming local elections, the Forum promotes civic engagement through voter education and training sessions on how government works. •In Waltham Forest, a diverse borough in east London, the city council was awarded the Beacon status for building "cohesive and resilient communities." In a time when councils are facing tough cuts, Waltham Forest Council is finding new and innovative strategies to work with local voluntary organizations, minority communities, and youth leaders to accomplish their wide-reaching social cohesion agenda.
