About

LSP.png

Library Settlement Partnerships (LSP) offer a unique and innovative newcomer information service in several communities throughout Ontario. This service is made possible by a partnership of the settlement sector, public libraries, and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

LSP services vary in different cities around the province, and may include one-on-one settlement information and referral, group information sessions, and community outreach. Newcomer settlement workers are providing these services, in a variety of languages based on community needs, at nearly 50 public library branches in communities with high newcomer populations.

The settlement sector brings its extensive experience with newcomer issues and services through over a dozen participating agencies. The partnering public library systems contribute expertise in information provision, as well as community education and leisure activities to facilitate newcomer inclusion and quality of life.


LSP is funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).


The Community Integration Network (CIN) is a service from the Catholic Centre for Immigrants (CCI) funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). In consultation with IRCC and in collaboration with the Service Providers, CIN works towards standards, tools, resources and program coordination that support the effective delivery of services under the Community Connections stream. This includes Community Connections programs and activities, Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) and Library Settlement Partnerships (LSP).
