Colleges and Institutes Supporting the Integration of Immigrant SymposiumColleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) held its Colleges and Institutes Supporting the Integration of Immigrants conference last week in Ottawa. The event gathered college experts, immigrant advocates, community workers and leaders from the private sector for some fascinating discussion on this very important topic and on the impact of the Express Entry program on international students.Many presentations throughout the event emphasized the importance of working collaboratively to improve opportunities for new Canadians and help them integrate both their new communities and the Canadian workforce. Given the importance of education in this regard, as well as the impressive reach of colleges and institutes in communities across the country, there is little doubt that CICan members have a key role to play in supporting immigrant integration. However, in order for them to maximize their impact, it is important for colleges and their partners to adopt a holistic approach to put in place structures, programs and services to effectively support immigrants.
