Marcel Marinho

Local Immigration Partnership Coordinator

Local Immigration Partnerships (LIPs) are community- based partnerships that:

     - Systemize local engagement of service providers and other institutions in new comers'integration process.

     - Support community level research and strategic planning 

     - Improve coordination of effective services that facilitate immigrant settlement and integration.

LIPs do not deliver services directly to newcomers but provide a collaborative framework to facilitate the development and implementation of sustainable solutions for the successful integration of newcomers that are local and regional in scope. 

The overall objective of the LIPs initiative is to enhance collaboration, coordination and strategic planning at the community level in order to faster more welcoming and inclusive communities and improve settlement and integration outcomes.
