COMMUNITY EVENT Come and learn about the Local Immigration Partnership planned for Winnipeg and how you can contribute to making our city a welcoming and inclusive place for newcomers.
Monday, September 22nd, 3:00 - 5:00 pm IMMIGRANT CENTRE, 100 Adelaide Street
We will tell you more about how we are setting up the LIPW – who is involved, how the LIPW Council will function and what the long term goal of LIP is.
We also need to hear from you about what you think are the needs of newcomers and the community that a LIPW Council can address.
Immigrants bring technical skills and commercial interests to Winnipeg.
You can have input to the LIPW and therefore contribute to both newcomer integration and Winnipeg development.
The event is hosted by the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg and the Manitoba Immigrant and Refugee Settlement Sector Association who are partnering to establish the Local Immigration Partnership Winnipeg. More information is available at www.spcw.mb.ca or by contacting:
