Waterloo Region is one of Canada’s most desirable communities. It’s also one of Canada’s largest centres for immigration, welcoming newcomers from around the world to contribute to the cultural mosaic that helps define our unique brand.
Providing access to programs and services that break down traditional barriers to success for new Canadians and other underrepresented groups has long been core to Conestoga’s vision for excellence in polytechnic education.
By 2031, it is expected that immigrants will make up more than 30 per cent of the community’s total population.
The Access Hub will improve the employment potential of immigrants and new Canadians, who are often disadvantaged in terms of employment and income opportunities.
