UNB Saint John will launch a major study on the immigrant experience in Saint John tomorrow night. UNBSJ has partnered with Enterprise Saint John and the Atlantic Metropolis Project to undertake the year-long study to be lead by Dr. Greg Marquis. UNBSJ's urban researcher, Kurt Peacock, says the study is meant to examine how recent immigrants to Saint John can be fully welcomed.
A reception will be held at the University’s Grand Hall on Charlotte Street at five o'clock tomorrow to help build cultural awareness in the city and introduce the study to the community. Cultural entertainment from a variety of different groups will also be part of the evening’s celebration.
