Cornwall Ontario – St. Lawrence College (SLC) is inviting members of the Cornwall campus community and the general public to join a conversation around “New Canadian Perspectives” – discussing the human side of immigrating to Canada. Learn from the experiences and decisions new Canadians navigate as part of their journey and explore what it means to leave community and culture behind for something completely new.
