Calgary Local Immigration Partnership

Learn more about CLIP

The Calgary Local Immigrant Partnership (CLIP) initiative aims to create a more welcoming and inclusive community for immigrants and newcomers in Calgary. Working with community partners, CLIP’s goal is for newcomers to thrive and succeed in Calgary by easily accessing the resources and services they need.

CLIP works across sectors, organizations, and service systems to improve local capacity to welcome and support newcomers. CLIP has identified strategic priorities to help newcomers adjust to life in Calgary.

Local Settlement Strategy and Action Plan

In 2016 and 2017, the CLIP Council came together to design a Three-Year Local Settlement Strategy. The Council identified five strategies that will help newcomers and immigrants in Calgary to thrive. CLIP's working groups, which consist of over 100 members, started meeting in January 2018 to identify actions to advance the five strategies.

The Immigrant Advisory Table acted in an advisory capacity by reviewing and contributing to all the material that was developed. The CLIP council provided feedback and guided the process. The CLIP Action Plan for 2018-2020 was finalized in June and shared with the community.
