AS PART OF THE 2015 ANNUAL REPORT:
The Winnipeg Jewish community is internationally recognized as a welcoming, vibrant, organized and developed destination for Jewish families. We received many immigration inquiries over the past year from Moldova, Ukraine, Russia, Brazil, Turkey, Argentina, Uruguay, Cuba, France, Hungary, and Israel. In 2015, our immigration initiative assisted 282 people relocate to Winnipeg and we hosted 115 exploratory visits. GrowWinnipeg continues to investigate new ways of reaching out and connecting with Jews around the globe who want to make Winnipeg their home. Equally important, GrowWinnipeg established a welcome committee in order to facilitate social and employment connections, which make the settlement and integration process much more successful for families new to Winnipeg.
