Abbotsford Local Immigration Partnership
Archway Community Services has developed a locally based Abbotsford Local Immigration Partnership Council to involve people who work in different sectors (such as health, education, real estate and agriculture) in planning for the successful integration of more than 1000 newcomers who arrive in this city each year, and the many new immigrants who live in the Fraser Valley.
A group of business and community leaders who represent a variety of sectors and expertise form the Partnership Council. The main work of the Partnership Council is to oversee the development of a local newcomer settlement strategy and action plan, with the ultimate goal of factoring immigrant settlement and integration into the broader community planning process.
