0%

“Focusing on building positive experiences and welcoming everyone, we look forward to working together to achieve an inclusive community that everyone is proud to call home”

Karthi Rajamani, LIP – Lanark & Renfrew Advisory Council Co-Chair

After 10 years of foundational work in Lanark and Renfrew Counties, the Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) continues to play a key role in attracting newcomers to the region with a focus on helping them settle and build lives in Canada.  The Partnership has recently launched a new Strategic Plan, entitled: Welcoming Communities: No Wrong Door that will guide its work through 2025.

The focus areas include creating connections to enhance links between stakeholders; building trust by influencing positive attitudes towards immigrants and the contributions that they make to communities; providing additional employer outreach and support to help newcomers access employment; and creating an integrated learning framework that allows both newcomers and community members to learn from one another.
