Based on several community consultations and literature review and analyses, the TCLIP developed its Strategic Plan for 2016 – 2019. Four strategic priorities were identified:
- Immigrant Labour Market Integration
- Newcomers’ Knowledge of and Access to Community Information and Services
- Social Isolation of Tri-Cities’ Newcomers
- Civic Engagement of Tri-Cities’ Newcomers
TCLIP has successfully received funding for the implementation of these strategic priorities for 2016- 2019. During the implementation phase, we will continue to emphasize the importance and value of partnerships, collaborations, community engagement and sustainability in our activities. Our annual action plans are guided by the strategic plan and directed by the TCLIP Council and several committees.
See ANNUAL REPORT for more information.
The Tri-Cities LIP is pleased to announce the following initiatives for 2019-2020:
Newcomer Employment Week
Newcomer Employment Week returns to the Tri-Cities on November 18- 22.
Newcomers are invited to meet and network with employers and service providers. This year’s theme is on the Importance of Workplace Culture. Learn how workplace culture plays a key role in an organization’s recruitment process.
Start the week at Coquitlam Public Library on November 18th from 10am – 3pm with workshops, employer panels, resume clinics & speed networking with employers.
