We are so happy you have chosen Greater Sudbury as your home.  Sudbury is a city that celebrates diversity, multiculturalism, and mutual respect for all of our citizens.

Sudbury is proud to welcome you to what we believe is one of the greatest cities in our nation.  We know you will feel right at home and we will work to make sure you do.

We invite you to explore what Sudbury has to offer to newcomers and some of our amazing local businesses and tourism destinations.

The Sudbury Local Immigration Partnership (SLIP) focuses on the development of different initiatives to ensure that Greater Sudbury continues to be a welcoming community for newcomers of all walks of life.


The SLIP fosters an inclusive, engaging and collaborative environment with local stakeholders to identify issues, share solutions, build capacity and preserve collective memory for the purpose of ensuring the attraction, settlement, inclusion and retention of newcomers in the City of Greater Sudbury.


United for an inclusive and prosperous Greater Sudbury

Why Immigration Matters

Immigration plays an important role in the economic growth and cultural diversity of our community.

It’s vital to hear the stories of individuals choosing to live and work in Greater Sudbury. Greater Together was launched by the Local Immigration Partnership in collaboration with the City of Greater Sudbury telling immigration stories that celebrate Greater Sudbury’s cultural diversity.

Our Immigration Matters infographic demonstrates the value of immigration to help create a vibrant and strong community.
