There are few studies that explore newcomers’ lived experiences in small and medium-sized cities from a comparative place-based synthesis. Place Matters when it comes to the understanding of the complexity of newcomer retention and integration. Our team has interviewed 17 immigrants, refugees, and temporary foreign workers who are residing in 9 small and medium-sized cities across Canada. 13 participants contributed their Photovoice to this online exhibition. The research reveals that third places play an important role in shaping migrants’ lived experiences in smaller cities and have an impact on their wellbeing when considering the opportunity for social interaction, and accessibility to ethnocultural amenities, social services, and nature.
