The reimagining of the Edmonton Local Immigration Partnership (ELIP) is an opportunity to build a collective of Edmonton stakeholders committed to ensuring newcomers have the pathways and resources to succeed and thrive in Edmonton. This collective will include organizations both inside and outside the settlement sector, representatives from government systems, and most importantly, newcomers with lived experience.
We’d like you to join the journey and be a part of the conversation. Register for an upcoming engagement session.
COVID-19 is having a significant impact in our communities; its effects are felt here and around the world. For individuals and organizations who support newcomers, we know this stress is significant. Physical distancing has greatly impacted the ways in which organizations offer critical programming and supports to newcomers, and has placed considerable strain on resources. Services that were once offered face-to-face are now far more difficult with additional challenges such as access to technology, language resources and increased demand for services.
