The city of Vancouver is addressing issues for immigrants and refugees who are new to Vancouver through the youth civics 101 program. The goal of the program is to help immigrant youth learn more about the city. Suggestions made by participants are to help immigrant families adapt and integrate to a new city.
Participant of the program Jason Su. Found the program did give a platform for the youth to be heard, but there are still solutions yet to be made.
“There is still work to be done to help immigrants integrate into Canada, we are trying to come up with more diverse solutions. ” – Jason Su, Civic 101 participant
