Local Immigration Partnership


Want to get involved in community planning?

CCS leads the Local Immigration Partnership in the Toronto East Quadrant (TEQ-LIP) to support the development of local partnerships that strengthen the ability of the community to help newcomer settlement and integration.

The Partnership brings together organizations and community members with different expertise to make our community more welcoming, open and responsive to the needs of newcomers. The objectives of the LIP are to:


  • Provide a framework for development and implementation of sustainable solutions for the successful integration of newcomers
  • Support coordination and collaboration in planning and delivery of services
  • Strengthen the community’s capacity to support the integration of newcomers
  • Increase economic, social, political and civic participation by newcomers


Scarborough Newcomer Needs and Trends Report Project (SDI)

The Scarborough Newcomer Needs and Trends Report Project works to assist organizations in working together to maximize use of service delivery data and analysis to identify newcomer service trends.The project will create a digital centralized platform as well as a semi-annual update report that enables diverse organizations to pool service delivery and other public data for joint analysis. Through this initiative agencies will have better and more timely evidence for service delivery and program planning and funding proposals.

The project is led by the Toronto East Quadrant Local Immigration Partnership, with Catholic Crosscultural Services as the lead agency, in partnership with the University of Toronto Scarborough and guided by an Advisory Committee of representatives from participating organizations.
