Working Groups

Purpose of Working Groups

The RRLIP project convenes working groups to either support the implementation of the actions embedded in the Settlement and Integration Community Plan Settlement and Integration Community Plan or to support activities laid out in the RRLIP project's contract agreement with its funder.

Sponsoring Community Network (SCN)

The RRLIP convened the Sponsoring Community Network (SCN) in September 2017 so that together, sponsoring community members can share challenges, promising practices and local program and resource information. A membership survey helped the RRLIP identify key information the SCN required, such as local employment programs and services. The RRLIP quickly coordinated a visit from local employment service providers by the SCN's second meeting. Members have expressed a desire to meet often (every 6 to 8 weeks) as they have benefited from the information exchange and support. If you are planning to, or are currently sponsoring, and would like to become a part of the Sponsoring Community Network, please contact the RRLIP office at
