Being outdoors together seems to allow people to get beyond cultural differences effortlessly. This article describes how the author uses outdoor recreation to foster intercultural understanding and the integration of new immigrants in Montreal. She aims to foster crosscultural understanding and the integration of new immigrants through traditional outdoor activities including camping, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and skating. She outlines the need for accessible outdoor recreation tailored for immigrants, as well as describes her current and future plans for putting in place such a program.
