Growing Roots Newcomers' Guide
Developed in response to the varied needs of newcomers arriving in the city, Growing Roots: A Newcomer's Guide to Vancouver is much more than a directory of available programs and services. An initiative of the Welcoming Communities Project, the guide is a valuable resource for improving immigrant settlement and integration.
Growing Roots is also an invitation for participation and civic engagement, encouraging newcomers to get involved in their neighbourhoods and communities. This useful, digital guide provides information on accessing welcoming spaces, volunteer opportunities, and important resources in the community. One of the most interesting aspects of Growing Roots is the personal narratives highlighted in the guide, where both newcomers and long-term residents share their stories about living in Vancouver and engaging with each other.
