Join us to learn about groundbreaking initiatives in Wellington, New Zealand, and Vancouver, Canada, that are bringing new immigrant and indigenous communities together for intercultural learning and meaningful exchange as an essential part of newcomer settlement and welcome in these multicultural societies. 

Featured Good Ideas

  • In Wellington (New Zealand), the Marae Welcome Program connects newcomers to New Zealand’s indigenous people and helps them understand the significance of Maori culture in contemporary New Zealand society. Activities include educational workshops on the Treaty of Waitangi (the founding document of New Zealand as a nation), Maori culture, its language, and history. Interpreters are on hand to bridge the language barrier among participants.
  • In Vancouver (Canada), the City launched the “Dialogues Project” to help build stronger ties between indigenous and immigrant communities in the city. Developed by the Social Planning Division in collaboration with 27 community partners, “Dialogues Between First Nations, Urban Aboriginal and Immigrant Communities in Vancouver” aims to build mutual understanding and respect through activities that include dialogue circles, community research, and a youth and elders program.

Speakers

  • Judi Altinkaya, National Manager, Settlement Unit Immigration New Zealand
  • Baldwin Wong, Multicultural Social Planner, City of Vancouver
