Local Immigration Partnerships (LIP’s) are municipal or regional coalitions designed to strengthen local capacity to attract newcomers and improve integration outcomes in all aspects of life. Funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), LIP’s were established to encourage a community-driven strategic planning process. The vision was one that combined national objectives and financial support for settlement and integration with considerable scope for local discretion in service integration and community pathways.
In the city of Guelph and Wellington County, it was the City of Guelph which hosted the Guelph-Wellington Local Immigration Partnership (GWLIP). Established in 2009, the GWLIP is responsible for bringing the Guelph and Wellington County and community stakeholders together in support of immigrant integration. Recent projects include the Immigrant Housing Barriers Study, Refugee Settlement Study, and Community Neighbourhood Snapshots.
