Building an Inclusive North Shore

The North Shore Immigrant Inclusion Partnership (NSIIP) is a coalition of 35+ community agencies and institutions focused on improving the settlement outcomes of new immigrants. 

Through collaboration with our partners, we aim to work towards a vision of an inclusive North Shore where everyone has a sense of belonging. We support projects and lead initiatives that aim to ensure all immigrants have opportunities to fully participate economically, socially, and civically in our North Shore communities.

Strategic Priorities

Access to Information & Services

Immigrants and community stakeholders all have access to current and relevant information and resources to facilitate settlement and integration.

Community Connections & Intercultural Relationships

North Shore residents are engaged in building cross cultural relationships and mutual trust.


North Shore immigrants have access to employment that matches their skills, education, and experience.


Immigrants play a representative role in guiding the development of the communities of the North Shore.
