HIPC Seeks New Members for Council and Committees

A group of people having a discussion

Hamilton Immigration Partnership Council (HIPC) is a community table housed within the City of Hamilton and funded by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada. With partners from various sectors – including settlement, education, business, health, social services, and persons with lived experience – we work together to create a welcoming community with relevant and accessible services.

HIPC member organizations collaborate on projects and engage in advocacy to support local settlement and integration. Most members represent a partner organization, but HIPC also holds space for individuals with lived experience of immigration.

HIPC is relaunching its Council and Committees and seeks new members.

The Council

Applicants should be community leaders, passionate about Hamilton and embrace the many benefits of a vibrant immigrant population.  
HIPC strives for a balance of age, gender and diversity in terms of region of origin, ethnic background, and sexual orientation. The inclusion of Hamiltonians with a variety of lived experience as newcomers and community leaders is a priority for HIPC and its committees.
The term is one to three years, with the possibility of renewal.

Benefits of Joining HIPC:

  • Access to a broad professional network
  • Being part of a movement towards collective impact to effect positive change in the lives of newcomers and the wider Hamilton community
  • Access to professional development and skills building opportunities, in the areas of event planning, project management, research and evaluation and more
  • Provide input into HIPC’s direction and activities
