Immigrate

Welcome. Bienvenue. Anaii.

Sault Ste. Marie is a gathering place. In fact, over 5,000 people speak a language other than French and English, and you won’t be surprised to hear Arabic, Ukrainian or Hindi in the supermarket or at the bank. The Sault is also home to one of the largest populations of indigenous persons, mostly from the Anishinaabe group, who add great vibrancy to our cultural mosaic. 

Nowadays, newcomers from all over the world call Sault Ste. Marie home. While we still have thriving Italian, French, Portuguese, Polish, Finnish and Croatian communities from previous eras of immigration, the Sault is now home to growing communities from India, China, the Philippines, Latin America, and the Middle East. In addition, Algoma University and Sault College welcome hundreds of international students every year. Sault Ste. Marie cherishes its rich history of immigration and its many vibrant multicultural communities.

There are many reasons thousands of newcomers from around the world have chosen Sault Ste. Marie as their home: our affordable quality of life, our proximity to breathtaking natural surroundings, our abundance of employment opportunities. But most of all, newcomers have chosen Sault Ste. Marie as their home because it is a safe and welcoming community that embraces diversity and multiculturalism.
