What is a Local Immigration Partnership?
Communities across Canada are increasingly recognizing the value and benefits of welcoming newcomers and the importance of making plans for their arrival and integration.
Local Immigration Partnerships come from a recognition that large-scale social change is the result of better cross-sector coordination rather than the isolated efforts of individual organizations. Local Immigration Partnerships are community-based partnerships that:
- Support community-based knowledge sharing and local strategic planning
- Improve the coordination of settlement services
- Raise awareness of the benefits of immigration and needs of newcomers
- Foster welcoming and inclusive communities
This initiative is a collaboration between Grey and Bruce Counties and is funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
