Immigrant Advisory Table
The Immigrant Advisory Table (IAT) is a diverse and inclusive table that informs the work of the Partnership Council. Members represent a diversity of backgrounds, ages, cultures, languages, genders, education and varying settlement stages. For example, current members represent countries such as Jamaica, Egypt, Ghana, Ukraine, Morocco, India. Mexico, Sudan, Bhutan, Latvia, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. The IAT has 12 members (as of July 2017) and meets on a quarterly basis. Although early in its development, members have provided feedback to the Partnership Council and an Advisory Committee on a variety of topics (e.g. feedback about the needs of newcomers adapting to Canadian housing).
This Table not only exists to support the work of this community initiative but also to provide opportunity to newcomers to gain meaningful Canadian volunteer experience, develop friendships and to build knowledge and expertise about the local community. In turn, IAT members are well-connected to the newcomer community and share what they have learned with others.
