Huntingdon Mayor Stéphane Gendron wants to encourage immigration to save his town, which has been struggling ever since large-scale factory closures some years ago. To turn his idea into reality, Stéphane Gendron pitches his ideas at a mosque and goes to see what has been done elsewhere…
What dreams do immigrants have before arriving here? What obstacles to they face when they arrive? Mayor Gendron’s project is a way in to a discussion about immigration and social and economic integration. What are the arguments in favour of immigration to Quebec? What do employers say about it? What do specialists think? Why do immigrants have a difficult time finding jobs that match their expertise?
But the biggest questions are: Will Stéphane be able to make his project a reality? Will immigration save Huntingdon?
