The LIP model is having success across Canada with more than 70 LIPs across the country.
Funding and support for the LIPs comes from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The Immigration Partnership Winnipeg (IPW) helps create an inclusive welcoming community that has a strong desire and capacity to receive newcomers and make them feel at home.
