The Langley Local Immigration Partnership is one of more than 60 Immigration Partnerships in Canada. With funding from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, the Langley LIP

Ultimately, all residents, regardless of background and length of time in Canada, will feel welcomed, and included and hold a sense of belonging and attachment to Langley.

When it comes to career growth, we all have to be intentional to see ideal results. One of the proven techniques is to ask the right and, sometimes, uncomfortable questions. Asking the right questions for career growth?

Did you know that by the early 2030s, it is expected that Canada’s population growth will rely exclusively on immigration? Immigrants to Canada come from many countries, and possess a wide variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. They are able to integrate effectively in communities across the country, and will continue to be a key driver in advancing Canada’s economy.Read the 2020 Annual Report to Parliament on immigration here: www.canada.ca/content/dam/ircc/migration/ircc/english/pdf/pub/annual-report-2020-en.pdfImage: Immigrants and Newcomers Contribute to Economic Growth, source Canada 2020 Annual Report to Parliament on Immigration#IWC #NorthVancouverIsland #Immigrants #ImmigrationMatters ...
