Reading the Star this morning and what should pop up but an ad for a cool online publication I was unaware of. It's called Canadian Immigrant (the online version of a Vancouver based publication available by subscription, or picked up free at many locations, including 7-11's) and while it's a bit light on the journalism side, I can't say I've seen another collection of information and resources like it.
The site aspires to "inform, educate and motivate", and contains articles and links covering areas of interest to immigrants like careers (tips for resumes, finding work, overcoming obstacles), money, business, culture, education, getting settled, and more.
The publication claims research showing that it takes 10 years on average for a new immigrant to assimilate into Canada, and the goal in publishing this journal was to attempt to cut that time down by addressing issues of interest to most new residents of Canada.
Most of the content on the site is made up of brief, short articles - nothing too deep or heavy; but it makes the site sort of like a primer on Canada and immigration. There is nothing wrong with broad brush-strokes once in awhile and this site is a place to get a big picture of the immigrant landscape.
Check it out, as you're sure to find a few things of interest.
