In January 2008, the PNSG Collaborative launched a systematic review of the existing literature related to newcomer settlement and integration. While the study focused on local data, it also analyzed research conducted in jurisdictions beyond Peel and Ontario. The research culminated in a report released in November 2008 and titled, Peel Community Report: a Profile of the Peel Community.
It identified key demographic indicators of the Peel population specifically poverty, income, diversity, education, employment and language while highlighting immigration trends and neighborhoods with high immigrant concentrations.
During its work over the last couple of years, the PNSG Collaborative has produced reports related to newcomer settlement and inclusion in the Peel community. The reports provide insights about PNSG’s work related to newcomer settlement and inclusion.
