The Role of Churches in Immigrant Settlement and Integration
The Guide to Action is a practical, interdenominational toolkit for congregational leaders in Canada. It features eleven key strategies (described as "Wayfinding Actions") that Church leaders can use in working with - and learning from - immigrants and refugees. The Guide also encourages individuals and groups to balance the "doing" of settlement and integration ministry with the "being" of a cultivated spirit of love, friendship and welcome. Watch the video below for a brief introduction to the Guide to Action.

FYI: The Guide to Action builds on a series of interviews, case studies, and surveys with faith leaders from across Canada. Click here for more information about the project, and here for a full list of national and local-level research reports.
*PowerPoint Slides - Guide to Action
Nelson Chang - a Research Assistant on the Churches and Immigrants project - together with other team members from CCBR created a PowerPoint version of the Guide to Action.
