NSIIP creates resources to support community stakeholders working in settlement, integration, diversity, and inclusion. Many of our resources are designed to provide at-a-glance information about newcomers’ experience in North Shore, and outline suggestions for building inclusive spaces in our communities and workplaces. 

All of our work is guided by feedback from our partners and community stakeholders. If you have any suggestions or comments about our resources, please let us know at
