North Shore Local Immigration Partnership (LIP)
To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
This ‘North Shore LIP’ is part of an innovative model of more than 60 LIPs across Canada (including four in Nova Scotia) which have the overall objective of enhancing collaboration, coordination and strategic planning at the community level to foster more welcoming and inclusive communities that improve settlement and integration outcomes for newcomers. This regional partnership of diverse stakeholders, including multi-levels of government, community agencies, health & education services, employers among others will encourage communities to better understand and consider newcomers’ assets and needs in terms of access, coordination, and programming.
