“The journey to a better life for an immigrant begins with the desire to move from the seemingly unwanted familiar to the sought-after but unfamiliar reality despite the many uncertainties and learnings that lay along the way. My mission is to help you navigate these uncertainties with the right information, resources and communities – ultimately empowering you to thrive in Canada.”– Oyin Ajibola
Immigrants often have to survive despite discriminatory policies and practices in the corporate world, public services and other institutions; and because they lack the knowledge and willpower to advocate for themselves, they overlook these practices and policies. Immigrant Muse advocates for immigrants by using the power of the media to investigate issues and request information that would otherwise not be accessible to immigrants. Our mission is to get better outcomes for immigrants by engaging in dialogues with key decision makers at these organizations to effect change for the benefit of all stakeholders.

The iConnect app is a community-building web app for immigrants that also gives them easy access to relevant settlement services and programs at each stage in their settlement journey. The app officially launches in October 2022 during a hybrid launch event in Saskatoon (in-person). To sponsor this innovation, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
