On January 22, CICan hosted the Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the Honourable Ahmed Hussen, who announced the renewal of the Canadian Immigration Integration Program (CIIP).
This new phase for Planning for Canada represents an $18 million investment over four years and builds on CIIP’s past success in pre-arrival support services.
CIIP connects newcomers with a variety of services and supports, including those offered by colleges and institutes, to accelerate their integration into communities and in the workplace. Under the new Contribution Agreement with IRCC, CIIP will continue to operate field offices in India and the Philippines and will deliver online programs worldwide.
Since its inception in 2007, the program has served over 48,000 newcomers destined to all parts of Canada.
