The Francophone Immigrant Community of the City of Greater Sudbury:
An Overview of Existing Services and their Establishment Needs
Principal Investigators: A. Gauthier, I. Michel, A. Hien, B. Sanou
The City of Greater Sudbury welcomes more and more Francophone immigrants/newcomers. However, there are few Francophone reception structures targeting this population. In addition, there is insufficient information about this population that experiences increased vulnerability, and therefore it is necessary to continue these activities for their physical, mental and social well-being.
This project, a partnership between the Center for Rural and Northern Health Research (Laurentian University), Collège Boréal, the Centre de santé communautaire du Grand Sudbury (CSCGS) and the Centre Victoria pour femmes, will develop the socio-demographic profile of Francophone Immigrants/newcomers, elicit their views on how they would like organizations to meet their needs and will map the range of existing services available to them in the City of Greater Sudbury.
