The Story of the Collingwood Neighborhood House and the Integration of Immigrants in Vancouver
Explores the contemporary global social issue of immigration by looking at one neighbourhood in the city of Vancouver. Collingwood, a predominantly Anglo-European community until the 1980s, has been transformed by the arrival of large numbers of Asians, Africans and Latin-Americans. A neighbourhood that just 20 years ago was locking its doors, afraid of change, and telling immigrants to go back where they came from, is now a welcoming place for everyone. How did this happen? How did strangers become neighbours?.
