About the Program

ISANS Welcoming Communities program and Intercultural Competency Training aims to increase awareness about immigration and immigrant experiences to individuals in the community. If you're a service provider or member of the general public, this program will provide strategies to increase your ability to create safe and welcoming spaces, while supporting you to move from awareness to action. Through this process, you will be able to create more welcoming communities to help retain immigrants in Nova Scotia.

Program components include:

  • Our Building Intercultural Competence workshop, which is a full-day workshop offered online or in-person with the objectives to increase your understanding of settlement and integration issues, explore practical ways to welcome and support new immigrants, and develop your intercultural relationship-building skills for working with new immigrants
  • Tailored workshops to respond to specific needs of service providers and communities
  • Capacity-building activities with service providers and community members to create awareness of immigrant issues and systemic barriers, which include information-sharing, consultations, mediation, networking, conflict resolution, and relationship-building
  • Community events to help bring newcomers and longer-term residents together
    The program format is tailored to individual service providers', community members', and partners' needs and areas of interest.
