The Arrivals Project

How do we better welcome new immigrants to Canada?  What is their experience and how do we make it better?

Phase 1: Fresh Eyes

Completed in Summer 2012 in partnership with City Hall and Toronto Star with the Arrivals Project Team. We created an arrivals page (like the births and deaths pages) in the Toronto Star, telling the stories of recent immigrants to Canada. Along with the info in the Star we pasted enormous blown up photographs of the immigrants eyes, on the windows of city councilors offices at City Hall, so whenever the Councilor looked out his/her window they would see Toronto through the eyes of a new immigrant.
