Lethbridge Local Immigration Partnership

"Welcoming Communities are places that have a strong desire to receive newcomers and where everyone works to create an environment within which newcomers feel at home."

Immigration has always been a part of Canada’s history, and brings vibrancy, diversity and economic growth. It is estimated that people from over 55 countries currently reside in the City of Lethbridge.

The Lethbridge Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) is a community initiative which officially began in June 2016. Funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), it is one of many LIP initiatives established across Canada.

Each local immigration partnership is tasked with creating a strategic immigration plan unique to their area. Lethbridge LIP seeks to collaborate with local residents, community organizations, businesses, and government agencies, to identify and reduce the barriers experienced by newcomers in the Lethbridge area.

If you are interested in participating in the Community Partnership Council (CPC), one of our working groups or the Immigrant Advisory Table (IAT), please contact us for more information.
