Regina Region Local Immigration Partnership (RRLIP)
The Regina Region Local Immigration Partnership (RRLIP) is a community initiative designed to improve the integration of newcomers. The RRLIP works to strengthen the community’s ability to welcome, settle and integrate newcomers by providing Information, Education, Connections & Coordination. It is guided by the vision of Regina as a welcoming, inclusive community where immigrants fully benefit from and contribute to the social, cultural and economic fabric of the city.
The program is overseen by Regina Open Door Society Inc. (RODS) and the Regina Human Services Partnership (RHSP) and funded by IRCC.
Launched in 2014, the RRLIP provides indirect service, working with local stakeholders to improve settlement and integration outcomes for newcomers living in Regina. The RRLIP has fostered many connections with local organizations, hosted numerous community forums and continues to assess the local needs of newcomers, as well as highlight local successes.
The RRLIP website (www.rrlip.ca) is regularly updated with project news and resources, events, and pertinent information. Quarterly Newsletters are developed and distributed, to inform the community of the RRLIP’s work. The website has an option to sign up for weekly emails, where you can receive immigration-related information, community activity details and useful resources.
The RRLIP is directed by a multi-sector Partnership Council. An Immigrant Advisory Table informs the work of the RRLIP and supports the broader community’s efforts to engage and work effectively with newcomers. There are currently three additional RRLIP-convened Working Groups that support the RRLIP project initiatives.
The RRLIP would like to thank its partners – Regina Human Services Partnership (RHSP) and Regina Open Door Society (RODS), as well as its funder – Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
