This season, The Newcomer is exploring what success means to immigrants. Whether that’s starting a business, finding their dream job, learning English, or contentment with their life in Canada. The Newcomer wants to read all about it! We are looking for articles that feature interviews with successful Canadian newcomers, whatever that means to them, as well as personal essays from newcomers themselves.

Submissions must be:

  • 500-900 words
  • Journalistic articles or personal stories. We do not accept works of fiction.
  • Complete and free of spelling and grammatical errors

For inspiration, check out the success stories on our website.
