Our Priorities

The Langley LIP Settlement Strategic Plan

The Langley LIP has received funding from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to develop and implement a Strategic Settlement Plan for the City and Township of Langley.  The LLIP commenced its work in April 2020 and has funding to support its work through to March 2025.

The Strategic Plan will aim to enhance community knowledge of newcomers’ contributions and assets and the challenges they face.  It will play a vital role in identifying immigrant needs and service gaps. It will support service coordination to avoid service duplication and to fill service gaps and assist stakeholders in adapting programming and policies. It will work to ensure all residents have the information and resources needed to be welcoming and inclusive.

Integration is a Two-Way Street

We see the development of genuinely welcoming  and inclusive communities as a “two-way street” that requires a focus on the experiences, contributions and barriers held by both newcomers and longer-term residents.

Collaboration

We value working with others and achieving together what may not be possible alone. We aspire to bring a collaborative spirit and strategy to all that we do, learning from others’ insights and leadership, and sharing openly what others may be able to learn from us.
