SLC is inviting members of the Cornwall campus community and the general public to join a conversation around “New Canadian Perspectives” – discussing the human side of immigrating to Canada. Learn from the experiences and decisions new Canadians navigate as part of their journey and explore what it means to leave community and culture behind for something completely new.

New Canadian Perspectives
Wednesday, November 30
4:30 to 6:00pm 
Aultsville lobby, St. Lawrence College’s Cornwall campus

Students, employees, and community partners are invited to learn from people’s lived experiences about what made a difference as their journey unfolded, what impacted their decisions, and how things are going now that they are here. More and more people are living – or know someone who is living – the new Canadian experience, and this event will educate attendees on realities and possibilities for community and individuals to engage.

  • Muhammad Owais Aziz – Professor, School of Interdisciplinary Studies, St. Lawrence College
  • Richard Webster – International Education Manager, Community Development
  • Corine Kapkop – SLC student
  • Moderator – Dr. Richard Wiggers – Dean, Faculty of Interdisciplinary Studies and Pathways and the Cornwall campus, St. Lawrence College

This is a free community event open to the public, however space is limited, and attendees are asked to register ahead of time. Light refreshments will be served.

The SLC Community Connection Series reflects the College’s commitment to engaging with community while helping advance topics that are relevant to our students and our partners. SLC aims to collaborate on solutions while fostering relationships that help build thriving communities on and off our campuses in Eastern Ontario.
