It is in the capacity of every city in the world to provide a better welcome and contribute to immigrant success by creating the conditions for investment, attachment and belonging.

Cities are uniquely positioned to learn from one another and to adapt and replicate good practice. Whatever the legal and jurisdictional framework, or differences in municipal responsibilities, cities around the world are accountable to their constituents and have a wide range of levers to introduce change – through policy instruments (equality, inclusion, nondiscrimination), as service providers (settlement, education, housing, police, etc.), as employers and diversity managers, and as the drivers of the local economy – from infrastructure and procurement to support for investment, entrepreneurship and small business incubation.

In Good Ideas from Successful Cities: Municipal Leadership in Immigrant Integration, nearly 40 international good practices are shared from cities across Canada, the US, Europe and Australasia.
