The Regina Region Local Immigration Partnership (RRLIP) is a community initiative designed to improve the settlement and integration of newcomers, guided by the vision of Regina as a welcoming, inclusive community. The RRLIP is directed by a multi-sector Partnership Council and informed by an Immigrant Advisory Table.
Role of the Immigrant Advisory Table
IAT members bring lived experience to the role, ensuring the newcomer perspective informs the work and decisions of the RRLIP Partnership Council. Through this important connection with the immigrant community, the Partnership Council develops insight into the components of a welcoming community. The Immigrant Advisory Table consists of newcomers to Canada, residing in Regina and representing a diversity of cultures, languages, ages and stages of settlement and integration.
There will be a minimum of 4 meetings per year. IAT members are unpaid volunteers and required to attend a minimum of 2 meetings per year. Interpreters can be made available during IAT meetings to ensure the full participation of each member.
In the interest of a diverse IAT, not all applicants can be selected. Applicants not selected may be contacted for other volunteer opportunities as they arise.
