Our Priorities

The Langley LIP Settlement Strategic Plan

In April 2020, Langley Community Services Society 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.

In March 2022, after considerable research and community consultation, the Langley LIP Strategic Plan was finalized. The priorities, goals and objectives held within this plan represent the cumulative input, experience and vision of the Langley LIP Committee, the local service provider community, the leaders of the City and the Township and of hundreds of immigrants living in Langley.

3.      Developing Community Capacity

4.      Supporting Meaningful Employment

Goal #1: Langley immigrants have access to services and supports that enhance attainment of employment commensurate to their skills education and experience.

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.

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.
