As part of the series, HIPC, Global Hamilton and WPH will contribute one immigrant profile every month. These profiles will feature immigrants, newcomers and refugees who are contributing to the Hamilton economy in different ways and showcase successful professionals, entrepreneurs and volunteers.
The objectives of including immigrant profiles in this series will be: 1. To showcase immigrant success stories and contributions,2. To highlight how Hamilton benefits from welcoming immigrants and refugees,3. To break common stereotypes held against immigration and refugees,4. To contribute to a positive narrative on immigration for the creation of a more welcoming community that celebrates diversity.
The profile will be in a Q&A format. Immigrants who are chosen to be profiled will need to understand that The Hamilton Spectator will publish their story, including their names and photo. Those who agree to be profiled will need to respond to photo requests and make themselves available at a convenient time.
How can you help? Please let us know of any immigrants who would like to be profiled in this series. Fill up the nomination form below!
