The Association for New Canadians hosted a Local Immigration Partnerships (LIPs) stakeholder session on 12 March 2013. Facilitated by Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Harris Centre, the session explored the interest in creating a LIP in St. John's.

LIPs are coalitions at the regional, municipal, or neighbourhood level designed to improve the integration of newcomers, as well as to strengthen a community's ability to attract newcomers.
