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.
