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 Strategic Plan 2022 - 2025 which articulates the goals that need to be met to achieve meaningful integration in a welcoming community.
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.
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.
To meet our objectives, our work is broadly organised around these initiatives:
Do you have experience providing English language instruction to adult students?
We are seeking expressions of interest from qualified individuals to provide instruction for our English in the Workplace Program (EWP).
We welcome your feedback and opportunities for collaboration! For more information on any of the programs and working groups, please contact: Director of Community Development
