About Surrey LIP

Local Immigration Partnerships (LIPs) are the mechanism through which Immigration Refugee and Citizenship (IRCC) supports the development of community-based partnerships and planning around the needs of newcomers. The City of Surrey is the lead agency of the Surrey LIP and holds the LIP contract with IRCC.

The Surrey LIP was formed in 2014 and is being led by the Surrey LIP Committee comprised of representatives of 30 organizations. In 2014-2016, the Surrey LIP developed strategic plans: Immigrant and Refugee Integration Strategies. Newcomer youth were identified as a key strategic priority in both Strategies.

The City of Surrey has a three year contract (2017-2020) with IRCC to support the Surrey Local Immigration Partnership in the implementation of two strategic plans.
