Did you know? One in four healthcare workers in Canada is an immigrant.
Earlier this fall, HIPC launched the Essential Immigrants campaign, a six-part series featuring immigrants serving on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic in Hamilton. Those interviews are all available in this thread.
The campaign has utilized the #ImmigrationMatters initiative and has been received positively, exceeding 33,000 views on Twitter!
To honour and recognize the work of Hamilton's Essential Immigrants, HIPC invites you to to join us for an hour on December 8 to celebrate their accomplishments and thank them for their continued service in our city. Mayor Fred Eisenberger will be attending and will bring remarks on behalf of the City of Hamilton.
This is a virtual event. This event is open to public and can be accessed on YouTube live.
