MDI supports the preparation of the Helsinki integration programme

In the autumn, MDI will support the preparatory work for the City of Helsinki’s integration programme (2021–2025). The Integration Act regulates the tasks of municipalities, one of which is to draw up an integration programme. Municipal integration programmes aim to promote the integration of immigrants and strengthen cross-sectoral cooperation.

The City of Helsinki’s ongoing integration programme was last created for the period 2017–2021. The goal of integration programmes is to enable Helsinki residents with a foreign background to better access positions that match their skills, education and abilities.

The preparatory work, which starts now, will assess the ongoing programme and provide guidelines for the programme for the new term which will be drawn up in broad cooperation between the various sectors and stakeholders. Preparatory work for the programme will be carried out through the analysis of documented material, individual interviews, surveys, and hearings as well as various network meetings.
