The Community Immigration portal is a one-stop, community-based immigration web portal, designed to welcome, support, attract and retain skilled newcomers, newcomer entrepreneurs, businesses and other new Canadians to our Region.
There are over 35 Community Immigration Portals across the province of Ontario. With funding from Ontario’s Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, the Region of Durham’s departments of Social Services, Economic Development and Corporate Information Services partnered to developed this portal.
Durham Region’s Immigration Portal is a truly collaborative and community-based initiative. Over 60 organizations from multiple sectors such as education, business, non-profit, government and business associations are taking shared responsibility for content creation and for the long-term sustainability of the portal.
The project team invited community participation from all eight local municipalities and are happy to report broad-based enthusiasm for the project and 100 percent participation.
