In order to better understand how migrants/minorities are perceived by the population, the city mandated students at the end of their studies to conduct, as part of their degree, a study including an analysis and recommendations. The results of this study show that, for the respondents, Sherbrooke is a welcoming city that cares about its citizens of diverse backgrounds. The study also shows that the respondents feel open and inclusive and do not see immigration as a threat or a hindrance. The results of this study entitled "Survey in the framework of the broad consultation for the next immigration action plan" will feed into the development of the action plan and the new policy for immigrant reception and integration. The results have not yet been made public (good practice drafted in October 2021).
Intercultural cities: good practice examples
The Intercultural city aims at building its policies and identity on the explicit acknowledgement that diversity can be a resource for the development of the society.
The first step is the adoption (and implementation) of strategies that facilitate positive intercultural encounters and exchanges, and promote equal and active participation of residents and communities in the development of the city, thus responding to the needs of a diverse population. The Intercultural integration policy model is based on extensive research evidence, on a range of international legal instruments, and on the collective input of the cities member of the Intercultural Cities programme that share their good practice examples on how to better manage diversity, address possible conflicts, and benefit from the diversity advantage.
This section offers examples of intercultural approaches that facilitate the development and implementation of intercultural strategies.
