Newcomers Guide now available in Punjabi
Richmond City Hall unveiled Thursday the latest version of its Newcomers Guide, now published in the Punjabi language.
The guide, which provides new residents with information about the city, local government and community services, was previously only offered in English, Chinese and Tagalog.
Richmond has a growing number of new residents and introducing the Newcomers Guide in different languages will make for a smoother transition into the community, according to the city.
According to the 2011 census, 5,795 residents identified Punjabi as their mother tongue.
The guide is available on the city’s website at richmond.ca. Limited printed copies are available at offices of local service agencies, including SUCCESS, 220-7000 Minoru Blvd.
