Sandbox:How to do Research
Information about how to utilize research on immigration and settlement for program planning, development and evaluation. Finding out more about newcomers to your community — where they are from, where they live, how they are integrating — helps you to plan what and where services are needed. This information can also help organizations to make more persuasive arguments when writing funding proposals.
