CICan officially announces phase two of the CIIPCICan has officially signed a two-year agreement (April 1, 2015 – March 31, 2017) with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for a second phase of the Canadian Immigrant Integration Program (CIIP). In this new phase of the program, CICan is collaborating with an important new partner: the International Organization for Migration (IOM, which administers the Canadian Orientation Abroad (COA) project). This partnership will expand pre-arrival services and ensure consistent curricula and materials worldwide.CIIP is also partnering with the Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne (ACUFC) to ensure that French-speaking immigrants destined for francophone minority communities have access to pre-arrival services that include connections to appropriate supports in Canada.CIIP has provided information, planning and linkages to almost 30,000 prospective immigrants since 2007. This pre-arrival support has contributed to excellent integration outcomes for participants.CICan members and partners, such as immigrant serving agencies, sector councils, regulatory bodies, industry and professional associations have contributed to the success of CIIP over the years and will continue to play a significant role in the program.

Congratulations!CorrectionWe would like to apologize for a mistake in last week’s congratulations. We erroneously stated that Sylvain Lambert had been nominated as the new director general of Cépep de Granby when he will in fact leave that position to become the new director general of Cégep Édouard-Montpetit. Our sincere apologies to Mr. Lambert, to both Cégeps and to anyone who may have been confused by this mistake.
