Citizenship and Immigration Canada provides Host Program funding to non profit organizations to recruit Canadian volunteer hosts and match them with new immigrants to Canada. The purpose of the match is to assist the newcomer to adapt quickly to life in Canada as well as provide the host with an appreciation of the challenges that the newcomer faces.
Each cultural profile provides an overview of life and customs in the profiled country. While the profile provides insight into some customs, it does not cover all facets of life, and the customs described may not apply in equal measure to all newomers from the profiled country.
These cultural profiles were developed in association with the AMNI Centre at the Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto.
NOTE: When printing PDF versions, you might need to update your printer drivers (software that allows your computer to communicate with your printer) if the first attempt at printing is not successful. Printer drivers are normally available on the web site of the printer manufacturer.
