A Local Immigration Partnership (LIP)
Working together for diverse, inclusive, and welcoming communities
The Welcoming Communities Coalition (WCC) is a Local Immigration Partnership – or LIP – coordinated through the Immigrant Welcome Centre.
LIPs collaborate with key people and organizations – including local residents, community groups, businesses, and government agencies – to create more welcoming and inclusive communities.
The WCC was launched in June 2016, and is the LIP for Campbell River and the Comox Valley. Currently, there are 19 LIPs across B.C. and 76 LIPs across Canada supported by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
