Community News

The Regina Region Local Immigration Partnership (RRLIP Project) strengthens and supports the community’s efforts to welcome, settle and integrate newcomers. In the last Newcomer Survey, we learned that many people do not know about programs in the community and/or how to access them. 

The Community News is intended to increase awareness and access to relevant programs, services and events that enhance and support newcomer settlement in Regina.
