Call for Proposals: Toronto Neighbourhood Partnerships

April 01, 2008 – New Call for Proposals: Local Immigration Partnerships - Toronto Neighbourhood Partnerships

A new Call for Proposals (CFP) is being issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) in partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration (MCI) to strengthen the role of local neighbourhoods in serving and integrating immigrants through Local Immigration Partnerships.

Local Immigration Partnerships (LIPs) will provide a collaborative framework for, and facilitate the development and implementation of, sustainable local and regional solutions for successful integration of immigrants to Toronto. LIPs seek to help communities put immigration on their overall planning agenda in order for communities to benefit from the successful social and economic integration of new immigrants.

This program is the result of collaborative efforts between the Government of Ontario and the Government of Canada. In November 2005, the Canada-Ontario Immigration Agreement was signed.

Download the Call for Proposals (in English or French) and application form (in English or French).

Note: Citizenship and Immigration Canada has already released a Call for Proposals for Local Immigration Partnerships in Ontario’s other municipalities (see below). A separate call is being released for Toronto to recognize that it has a unique situation in Canada as the most common immigrant destination in the country.
