Welcome to Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love. From its inception, Philadelphia has been a welcoming place to people from many walks of life. Our country was built by immigrants and our strength as a City continues to be reinforced by our vibrant diversity.

In recent years, Philadelphia has re-emerged as a regional center of cultural diversity, with an increasing population attributable in part to newcomers from around the world. According to the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institute, ""Among its peer regions, Metropolitan Philadelphia has the largest and fastest growing immigrant population"" which now 12% of the total population.
On March 7, 2013 Mayor Michael Nutter created the Office of Immigrant and Multicultural Affairs for the purpose of ensuring the well-being of immigrants and other groups by providing access to city services; engaging stakeholders in the development of economic resources, promoting civic participation and assisting with educational opportunities and access.
