I’m glad to introduce to you this new project.
International students pursuing a post-secondary education don’t want to get out of school to work in low-wage jobs. They come to Canada looking for a better life in the future. Most of them are here because they have better chances than in their home countries.
I Chose Winnipeg is a project aimed to show Canadians why International students are immigrating to Winnipeg, show the benefits of having immigrants in Winnipeg, and help them deal with cultural differences.
“It doesn’t mean they are going to steal jobs away from Canadians or that they will be a burden to the country.”
This project shows Canadians that having this large number of students is not a bad thing. It doesn’t mean they are going to steal jobs away from Canadians or that they will be a burden to the country.
The fact that there are more people willing to invest and spend money in Canada helps the country. There’ll be more taxpayers, more small businesses and more jobs.
The fact that immigrants are coming to Winnipeg is new, and it may be difficult for young people to understand why immigrants are coming here. Because of misconceptions, they may have learned at an early age in, they may have prejudiced views that have to end.
