WHO WE ARE
Abbotsford Local Immigration Partnership Council (ALIP) helps build welcoming communities. ALIP is a collective initiative designed to strengthen our ability to welcome immigrants and help make Abbotsford their home. By improving integration, we’re improving the economic, social and political participation and outcomes for newcomers and our communities at large.
Our partnership, formed in 2014, is coordinated by Archway Community Services, and supported with funding by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, as a Local Immigration Partnership Initiative.
The Partnership aims to build local capacity among all stakeholders to attract, settle and integrate immigrants. Therefore, members include community leaders across different sectors such as cultural, academic, social services and economic sectors.
