Living Diversity

マニラでのソーシャルワークとの出会い記録から、日本のソーシャルワーク×多文化/法律、インドで暮らし、働き、旅するカラフルさ、身体を解すこと、レジリエンス/回復についての試行錯誤を記録したく。 私もあなたも、ゆるく受けいれて生きていけるといいなと祈りながら。 フィリピンのダグダガイという竹の棒とココナッツオイルを使うフットセラピーが大好きでマニラまで習いにゆき、ひっそり身近なひとに好評です:)要らないものがごっそり削ぎ落とされ、ぐぐっと押しポイントに届く感じがたまりません^^

Memo of Toronto newcomer strategy 2013

All newcomers reach their full potential to thrive and contribute to their local neighborhood , community and city, ensuring Toronto's continued success and prosperity 😉

♣Toronto :Over half of its residents born outside Canada .
Total 2.5million
800,000 older immigrants
460,000 recent immigrants
Means many ppl settled down ?

♣Newcomers are healthier than Canadian born residents when they first arrive to Canada. However newcomers experiences a decline in their health due to stress associated with migration, settlement and adaptation.
One way to solve this issue is the collaboration between health and settlement sectors.

♣Toronto receives over 75000 immigrants every year !many with high levels of education and years of work experience.
Many newcomers hold PhDs , Master degrees and professional certifications from other countries😎. However, differing graduation requirements and expectations in professional fields prevents many qualified newcomers from working in their occupations.

♣Toronto is home to immigrants from over 188 countries. The top languages spoke in Toronto are Mandarin , Cantonese , Italian , Spanish, Tagalog and Tamil, Urdu ,Korean etc.
Hmm not Hindi !
South Indian na.
One of my friend told me that Punjaabee likes to live in Canada but their language is not shown in the 2011 census.

♣More cultural integration is required. Developing a sense of community is an important part of feeling at home.
Increased opportunities for volunteer work , skill development classes , psychical and social activities help ppl from canadian and other cultures come together ,learn from each other and develop new friendships.
However priorities for newcomers include for work , looking after children and trying to adjust, leaving little time to socialise and meet new ppl...😔
I thought newcomers expect to feel diversity. Why do they come ? To learn and get better opportunity after coming back to their home country ?
