1 2014 York Region Newcomer Survey Report June, 2014

2 Introduction and Background The York Region Local Immigration Partnership conducted a survey between January to March 2014 on newcomers who lived in York Region and immigrated to Canada in the past 15 years. This report is a summary of the findings of the main report. The 2014 Newcomer Survey serves to update baseline measures from the 2010 Newcomer Survey (appendix 1) and has been expanded with additional sections on employment, housing, mental health, and civic engagement to devise additional baseline measures to support the implementation of York Region s Immigration Settlement Strategy. The purpose of the survey was to identify (1) the challenges faced during the settlement and integration process and when accessing programs and services, and (2) the opportunities to improve the settlement experience in order to inform current and future planning for newcomers who come to York Region. Methodology A Steering Committee including members of immigrant service agencies in York Region as well as York Region Local Immigration Partnership staff helped design the suvey. The survey was conducted using an online and in-person approach and was offered in five languages. To administer the surveys in person, a Community Animator model was employed and four individuals were hired to recruit participants and support them in completing the survey. The animators visited several locations each to conduct the survey including immigrant service agencies, cultural organizations, ethno-specific locations, schools, faith centres, libraries, and special events taking place within York Region A steering committee was formed to guide the development and administration of the survey and was involved in various aspects of the project including survey design, recruitment of community animators, promotion of the online and in person survey, and participant recruitment within their own agencies. This committee also reviewed the final report on survey findings. In total, 861 surveys were completed, with 459 completed online and 402 completed in person across 30 locations in York Region including Aurora, Newmarket, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, and Markham. Survey respondents participated voluntarily and could skip any question without penalty. 2
