Immigration Partnership Winnipeg
About Immigration Partnership Winnipeg
The Immigration Partnership Winnipeg (IPW) is a federally funded program with the objective of building an inclusive welcoming community for newcomers to our city. We are hosted by the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg and are governed by a Council of community leaders from a diversity of sectors. Our goal is to create an inclusive welcoming community for newcomer immigrants and refugees in Winnipeg and this initiative will go a long way in meeting this goal. We deliver our work through collaborative partnerships amongst stakeholders and community groups.
Our overall objective is to engage groups that will coordinate and enhance the current settlement and integration service delivery network, while avoiding duplication. We encourage strategic partnerships between many stakeholders to improve dialogue and information sharing between sectors, identify gaps, and align services.
Our long-term vision is to support the development of multi-sectoral partnerships at the local community level to:
- Integrate newcomer needs into the community planning process.
- Identify community-specific strategic priorities.
- Implement a settlement strategy and action plans to improve newcomer outcomes.
