Five videos highlight stories of newly settled Richmond residents and resources to help others.

The City of Richmond is launching a new video series highlighting stories of newly settled Richmond residents and resources to help them in the community.

Five short videos were created for the Newcomers Video Series project and is part of the city's Cultural Harmony Plan.

The plan is looking to create "viable options of providing city-related information" to those new to the city, immigrants and refugees to help them access available services to get them settled.

There are several subtitle languages for the videos including Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Punjabi and Ukranian.

Subtitles in Arabic and Farsi are also in the works.

“The City recognizes the unique experiences of newcomers and the ongoing need to strive towards inclusion for all residents,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie.

“This informative video series celebrates and highlights the opportunities for newcomers in Richmond.”

The five videos share the different ways new residents can experience Richmond:

  • Richmond is My Home showcases the city’s diversity and the people who call Richmond home.
  • Settlement Services provides an overview of the types of support local settlement organizations offer to new immigrants.
  • Exploring Richmond shares the many recreational places where Richmond residents can enjoy and find community.
  • Richmond’s Heritage Places encourages newcomers to explore Richmond’s heritage, cultural and historic sites.
  • Getting Involved presents various opportunities for newcomers to become active members of their community.

Videos can be watched on the City of Richmond's YouTube channel or on the city's website.
