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.
