Building Intercultural Competence

As Nova Scotia becomes more culturally diverse, we all need to learn how to welcome and work with immigrants and build a better community together.

This full day workshop will:

  • Increase understanding of settlement and integration issues.
  • Explore ways to welcome and support new immigrants.
  • Develop intercultural relationship building skills for working with new immigrants.

The maximum number of participants is 16 – please be sure to register early.

This interactive workshop is open to organizations, service providers and community volunteers. There is no fee!
