What we do

The PEI Immigration Partnership (PIP) program is a Province-wide movement towards increased community-based support for newcomers in cities and towns across Prince Edward Island.

This IRCC funded program is grounded in partnerships and collaboration among municipalities, service providers, provincial government departments, organizations, and community and business leaders, who are actively seeking to sustain and grow PEI through immigration.

Our Vision

Increase growth in more PEI communities through community-based, province-wide, strategy and action for improved integration and retention of new residents.

Becoming PEI LIP

In September 2015, following over 5 years of informal conversation between community partners, PEI LIP became a reality. Partners joined together with the initial goal of ensuring that PEI is a place where newcomers and immigrants are welcomed, valued, and are able to fully participate in the community.

The PEI Local Immigration Partnership is built on existing networks and coalitions and seeks to support ongoing collaboration and information sharing, guided by those who have firsthand experience as newcomers. Their stories and wisdom will be used to ground our work.
