What are LIPs?

The Ridge Meadows Katzie Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) is a consortium made up of senior decision-makers representing business, health, libraries, culture, faith, local and provincial governments, parks and recreation, policing, banking and community and immigrant serving organizations.

Together these representatives plan and lead activities that aim to ensure the region is prepared to welcome and include new immigrants and support their successful settlement and integration.
