By using open data sets provided by the Government of Canada, newRoots matches new Canadians with cities that will give them the greatest opportunity to maximize their potential, be successful, and be productive citizens of Canada.
By using data sets in income, visible minority populations, crime rates, housing opportunities, climate, unemployment rates, and labour industries, newRoots is able to rank each major city in Canada for analysis.
While focused on new Canadians, newRoots can be used in the real estate market to offer more economic and social data for those looking to purchase or rent a new home. The Government of Canada and provinces could also use this tool to determine how resources should be allocated. Finally, the tool could also be used when job searching in a different city. We have just scratched the surface on what newRoots can do for Canada.
