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.
The work of the PIP is guided by the Community Immigrant Integration Plan 2016-2021 which articulates the goals that need to be met to achieve meaningful integration in a welcoming community.

To meet our objectives, our work is broadly organised around these working groups:
As the lead member for the Peterborough Immigration Partnership, NCC staff work closely with community partners and individuals to develop programs, coordinate service delivery for newcomers and refugees, and to improve organisational capacity to work with these client groups.

Peterborough Immigrant Needs Assessment 2021
In March 2021, the Peterborough Immigration Partnership conducted a survey to gather feedback to provide important information for the Partnership to shape how we design and deliver programs and services to support immigrants and refugees. We sought feedback from City and County residents who were born in another country.
Here is the report from the 2021 survey. Many thanks to all who participated!
