Peterborough Immigration Partnership

Established in 2008, the Peterborough Immigration Partnership (PIP) is a community-based partnership of individuals and organisations (including the New Canadians Centre) which envisions a community where the meaningful economic, social and cultural integration of newcomers ensures a prosperous and inclusive community for all.


Any organisation, municipality, business or individual in the City and County of Peterborough can become a partner by endorsing the vision and mandate of the Peterborough Immigration Partnership and by committing to advance the objectives of the PIP Strategic Plan.

The work of the PIP is guided by the Strategic Plan 2022 - 2025 which articulates the goals that need to be met to achieve meaningful integration in a welcoming community.

To meet our objectives, we bring partners together through these Working Groups:



As a lead member for the Peterborough Immigration Partnership, the New Canadians Centre works closely with PIP members to develop programs, coordinate service delivery for newcomers and refugees, and improve organisational capacity to work with these client groups.

These initiatives are facilitated by the New Canadians Centre to meet the goals of the Peterborough Immigration Partnership:

We welcome your feedback and opportunities for collaboration! For more information on any of the programs and working groups, please contact the Director of Community Development or the PIP Officer.
