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.
