The Impact of Intersectoral Collaboration on Non-Traditional Settlement Sectors: A Case of Local Immigration Partnerships in Ontario
April 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Local Immigration Partnerships are community-based councils whose goal is to develop a local settlement strategy to produce a welcoming community. LIPs’ activity mostly consists of working with non-traditional settlement sectors to increase diversity competency. Using academic and practitioner perspectives, this workshop examines the nature and effectiveness of these collaborations, with a focus on the impacts of LIPs on municipalities and the health sector in Ottawa and Waterloo Region. The presentations will feature a combination of research findings and on-the-ground experiences of LIP personnel to show the inroads intersectoral collaborations can make and challenges they may face with non-traditional settlement sectors.
