|Description (Service)||Local Immigration Partnership (LIPs) are the mechanism through which Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) supports the development of local partnerships and community-based planning around the needs of newcomers. LIPS engage various stakeholders in the partnership development process including employers, school boards, boards of trade, and levels of government, professional associations, ethno-cultural organizations and the community social services sectors.
Oxford County LIP supports the development of a long-term sustainable welcoming community in which newcomers feel valued and their needs are served. Oxford County LIP engages in actions that facilitate the integration of newcomers and build the capacity to meet the needs and promote inclusion of newcomers to Oxford County.
The Oxford Local Immigration Partnership Council is committed to nurturing a welcoming, inclusive, safe community that embraces and truly values diversity.
We recognize that by supporting and engaging newcomers, we will help ensure economic vitality and prosperity into the future.
