Newcomers’ Welcome Kit
The St. Lawrence Rideau Immigration Partnership has developed and produced a Newcomers’ Welcome Kit to serve as a quick reference and orientation tool for recent newcomers in the region. It offers valuable information on living, learning, working and doing business in the region. It can help newcomers to connect with the organizations, services, and information they need to become involved and contributing members of our communities.
To request a copy of the Welcome Kit, please contact the Immigration Partnership office by email or by calling the immigration partnership office at 613-498-2111.
Toolkit to Attract and Retain Immigrant Entrepreneurs
The result of nine months of research, analysis, consultation, and outreach developed into the toolkit to attract and retain immigrant entrepreneurs. This toolkit is specifically designed to take the foundation laid by the City of Brockville and the umbrella organizations that make up the St. Lawrence Rideau Immigration Partnership and move it forward into action.
This toolkit outlines the best practices that the City of Brockville, and other small centres like it, can employ to amplify its ability to attract, welcome, include, and retain immigrant entrepreneurs to Brockville from all corners of the world.

Refugees for Brockville
Since 2015, the City of Brockville has been actively involved in the welcoming of numerous newcomer refugee families and individuals. Refugees for Brockville is an umbrella organization that helps to facilitate the sponsorship and integration of these newcomers. Learn more on the Refugees for Brockville Facebook Group.
To address the many questions involved with the local sponsorship and support of newcomer refugees, the St. Lawrence Rideau Immigration Partnership partnered with service providers and refugee sponsorship groups to develop a guide for local groups or individuals wanting to learn more about how to sponsor and/or support refugee newcomers.
Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada has produced an animated video to provide refugees resettling to Canada with an overview of what to expect, including services and supports that will be provided to them to help them get settled in Canada. The video has been translated into the following languages and each one is hyperlinked to the video:
