How Welcoming or Inclusive is Hamilton?

Closed 29 Mar 2019

Opened 21 Feb 2019


Hamilton is ethnically diverse and its residents represent 160 ethnic groups from around the world, making up 22% of the population in Hamilton. Many of our city’s ethnic residents came here as migrants, refugees or international students.

We want to understand how we can support welcoming newcomers as part of Immigration New Zealand’s Welcoming Communities project, which aims to put out the welcome mat for people new to our communities.

This survey takes less than five minutes to complete.
