Following the announcement made by the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship on Canada’s Syrian Refugee plan, Toronto West Local Immigration Partnership (TWLIP) has identified a need to respond to the settlement of Syrian refugees in the area. Our plan includes:
- To create a Resource List that includes services available within the Toronto West LIP catchment area. The list will be shared with private sponsors.
*** Calling on organizations in West Toronto to submit information ***
- In collaboration with Toronto Newcomer Office (TNO), TWLIP held two Information sessions for Private Sponsors of Refugees, one on Jan 21st, 2016 and the other one on March 30, 2016. The events provided opportunities for the sponsors to learn about Syrian culture, and programs/services available for newcomers once they arrive in the city.
