Extensive public consultation for the development of the action plan and the new policy for the reception and integration of immigrants in Sherbrooke
The Intercultural City aims to build its policies and its identity on the explicit recognition that diversity can be a resource for the development of 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 meeting the needs of a diverse population. The Intercultural Integration Policy Model is based on extensive research evidence, a range of international legal instruments and the collective input of member cities of the Intercultural Cities Program who share their examples of good practice on how to better manage diversity, resolve potential conflicts, and benefit from the advantage of diversity.
This section provides examples of intercultural approaches that facilitate the development and implementation of intercultural strategies.
