‘Multicultural’ – The new mainstream.

“By 2020 more than 63% of the total Canadian population will be made up of visible minorities”. Canada is a rich mosaic of peoples, cultures & languages. And the process has only begun. Each new day adds a brand new facet to the national demographic mix. Europeans, North Americans, South Asians, Chinese, Filipino, immigrants from the Middle East & Africa….the marketplace is growing exponentially. For local businesses, that’s brilliant news…but it does come with a few challenges. Good News! Inspite of the dwindling ‘baby-boomer’ numbers across North America, the Canadian marketplace is thriving – fueled by the more than 250,000 new immigrants who arrive in the country each year. That’s a lot of new people to sell to!

FACT:

The days of the ‘one-size-fits-all’ communication approach are over. To be able to harvest these new market segments, communication needs to be tailored to the actual needs of the buyers – through concepts and stories that resonate with them and make them feel at home in their new environment.

MARKETERS’ CHALLENGE:

To successfully navigate through a disparate variety of languages & cultures and connect with these consumer groups on a 1-O-1. And once they have their attention, not only to sell to them but to keep them coming back for more.
