Brits coming to Toronto may decide to end up staying, thus becoming an immigrant, or even taking citizenship at some point.

A TV program launched by New Canadians focuses entirely on resources for newcomers and information to help succeed in Canada. It was launched on October 23, 2015 on the Rogers TV community channel in the GTA. It is telecast on Fridays at 7:00 p.m. and repeats several times during the week.

The first episode features resources for HR professionals, UP Express, an immigrant success story and the Newcomer Day celebrations.
