We are GVLIP. We champion the inclusion of newcomers in Greater Victoria.
We are responsive to the needs and aspirations of newcomers and the communities we live in, we are founded on collaboration and partnership, and we are results-oriented and dedicated to making a real difference in the community.
What do we do?
By listening to recent and established immigrants, informing our communities, engaging in local research, making connections, and collaborating on community projects and events, we foster partnerships with local governance, institutions, organizations, and businesses working in employment, healthcare, education, and housing, to create a welcoming equitable, inclusive, just, and well-connected community in which everybody has opportunities to thrive, learn, live, work, and play in safety.
The GVLIP is a local spoke in the Resilience BC: Anti-Racism Network.
