Community Partnership Network
The Community Partnership Network (CPN) is a group of over 270 local agencies, businesses, and institutions committed to building diverse, welcoming, and inclusive communities in Greater Victoria. CPN members work to develop their capacity by sharing resources and information aimed at promoting and supporting our increasingly diverse region.
The Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria (ICA) serves as the lead agency for the CPN. Our long term goal is to develop the Capital Regional District’s capacity to more effectively attract, welcome and integrate newcomers into our communities, workplaces, organizations and institutions. This project is made possible through funding from the United Way of Greater Victoria and the government of Canada.
“The Canadian Cancer Society is committed to respecting, responding to, involving and including the diverse communities we serve. We know that cancer doesn’t discriminate and we strive to provide services that are accessible to all. Having the support of the CPN and other member stakeholders provides us an opportunity to learn from one another and help to create a community-wide commitment to recognize and embrace the diversity of our community and individuals.” – The Canadian Cancer Society.
