Saint John Local Immigration Partnership

The Saint John Local Immigration Partnership (SJLIP) is a collaborative community initiative designed to improve newcomer settlement and integration outcomes, and to strengthen Saint John’s ability to better address the needs of newcomers. SJLIP is housed under Saint John Human Development council.

Launched in May 2017, the partnership brings together stakeholders from Saint John to develop a coordinated settlement, integration, and retention strategy.

Saint John Local Immigration Partnership is one of 77 Local Immigration Partnerships sponsored by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). This federal initiative addresses the growing need for systematic community planning around immigration settlement, integration, and retention.
