Local Immigration Partnership (LIP)

Local Immigration Partnership (LIP)

The Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) is a project recently initiated in Renfrew and Lanark Counties to strengthen the role of local communities in integrating and serving newcomer populations.  The LIP Council acts as a community advisory body lending direction to the development and execution of an Immigration Settlement and Integration Strategic Plan that will help improve recruitment, retention and way-of-life to newcomers in this area.

Throughout the strategic planning stages of the initiative (April 2011-March 2012), the LIP worked closely with local organizations, service providers and individuals to develop a viable plan to retain the newcomer population already in Renfrew and Lanark Counties.  As a result, the Rural Mosaic: Building on Strengths & Seizing Opportunities strategic plan was developed, which was officially launched and released to the public on March 30, 2012.
