Minister McCallum joins with The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce to discuss Canada’s continuing story of immigration
The story of immigration is inseparable from the story of Canada. Whether newcomers arrive as refugees, family members, or economic immigrants, they are an integral part of the Canada we know today. Minister McCallum will talk about the role of immigration in our society, and how it can contribute not only to the economy, but overall to a harmonious, successful and prosperous Canada.
