Our vision is to enable international students and young newcomers to be fully aware of and have access to opportunities in order to live, work, and play in Hamilton
• To connect international students and young newcomers to resources and networks that increase their chances to succeed, thereby strengthening the welfare of the City of Hamilton
• To showcase employment and volunteer opportunities by facilitating partnerships with local organizations and employers
• To create space for international students and young newcomers to network, support each other, and mutually enhance their community experiences in Hamilton
Hamilton's proportion of visible minorities could rise even higher in coming years as the city's Global Hamilton office attempts to retain more of the 5,000 international students who come to McMaster University and Mohawk College each year to study.
Count 24-year-old Joseline Nicholas as one of the successful converts.
With a heritage of English and Scottish names like Hamilton, Dundas, Ancaster and Flamborough, it’s perhaps not surprising that nearly half of the city’s people have their origins in the British Isles.
