Participating in physical and social activities are various ways how newcomers can become integrated into a community. Many of these activities can be low-barrier when designed with inclusionary principles in mind and when the focus is on connecting people based on commonalities, e.g. common interest in dance, food, music. Connections made within a community and social activities are often centred on sport or social activities. How can a newcomer to Canada use these activities as integration opportunities to Canada if there is no understanding of the value of these activities or if the vocabulary in an official language is not existent?
Attendees of this e-symposium will learn:
1. How physical and social activities could be used as a tool for integration into the community
2. How this can be taught in a LINC classroom
3. How these activities can be used as integration tools during settlement orientation sessions and workshops.
