Welcoming Communities Coalition

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. There are dozens more across Canada.
