Canadian immigrants represent about 16% of Canada's population and form an important part of Canada's social, cultural, and economic institutions. Regardless of gender, age, culture, education, and income, an individual’s mental health can fluctuate over time. That being said, the decline in immigrants’ health is a result of environmental, economic, genetic, and socio-cultural factors. Their health is influenced by factors such as new place of residence, employment, education, and poverty, as well as the accessibility and responsiveness of health practitioners (Mental Health of Immigrants, 2017).

Red Deer College recognizes that our campus is situated on Treaty 7 land, the traditional territory of the Blackfoot, Tsuu T’ina and Stoney Nakoda peoples, and that the central Alberta region we serve falls under Treaty 6, traditional Métis, Cree and Saulteaux territory. We honour the First Peoples who have lived here since time immemorial, and we give thanks for the land where RDC sits. This is where we will strive to honour and transform our relationships with one another.
