The Durham Advantage


In Durham Region, we understand that one of the greatest links to global markets are global workforces who bring creativity, new perspective and innovation. As such, the Durham community has put in place a number of services designed to help new residents, new business and new investors settle in Durham.

The Durham Immigration Portal is a one-stop, community-based immigration web portal, designed to welcome, support, attract and retain skilled newcomers, newcomer entrepreneurs, businesses and other new Canadians to our Region. Over 60 organizations from multiple sectors such as education, business, non-profit, government and business associations take shared responsibility for content creation and for the long-term sustainability of the portal. The portal also translates into 57 languages.
