Calgary Local Immigration Partnership

Calgary is the fourth most common destination for newcomers to Canada. While many immigrants choose Calgary to be their new home, they may not always be aware of the opportunities Calgary has to offer them to make meaningful contributions to our city.

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

Survey: Were you born outside of Canada?

Thank you to everyone who participated in CLIP's Survey in 2017. To see the results, you can read the Summary Report or view the complete Final Report.

Survey of Service Providers

In the fall of 2017, CLIP surveyed program managers from a range of mainstream and settlement agencies in Calgary. The purpose was to inform funders, CLIP, agencies, and government partners about the current state of local service provision in the settlement and integration of newcomers. The survey provided respondents with the opportunity to identify gaps in service provision, backlogs, waiting lists, or other barriers to delivering services. It also allowed them to share what they are doing well and what they believe contributes to that success. To see the results, you can read the Summary Report or view the complete Final Report.
