Our story

Until March 2022, International House Joensuu was known as the immigration services of the City of Joensuu. The ‘Become Karelian!’ project developed the integration consultation of labour immigration and the recruitment services of skilled foreign labour in cooperation with Business Joensuu and the Regional Council of North Karelia. The integration service was included as part of the immigration services and the activities were developed to better meet the needs of labour immigrants. The principle of the International House operating model is to bring together the services aimed at immigrants and develop cooperation between different operators to promote integration.
