The RRLIP project convenes working groups to either support the implementation of the actions embedded in the Settlement and Integration Community Plan or to support activities laid out in the RRLIP project's contract agreement with its funder.
1) Labour Market Working Group
One of the local priorities highlighted in the Settlement and Integration Community Plan is EMPLOYMENT. The Labour Market Working Group is comprised of newcomer-serving agencies and other local supports which, in varying capacities, impact newcomer employment. An annual initiative undertaken to support the employment priority is Newcomer Employment Week/ Semaine pour L’Emploi des Nouveaux Arrivants (NEW/SENA). With great collabboration, NEW/SENA 2018 and 2019 have been successful. If you'd like to join the NEW/SENA 2020 planning committee, please contact the RRLIP office at

2) Private Sponsorship Group Network
The RRLIP convened the Private Sponsorship Group Network 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 PSG Network required, such as local employment programs and services. If you are planning to, or are currently sponsoring, and would like to become a part of the Private Sponsorship Group Network, please contact the RRLIP office at
