Scarborough settlement agencies launching new strategy for immigrants

Community Nov 14, 2017 Scarborough Mirror

A million immigrants are coming to Canada in the next three years, and many of them will settle in Scarborough.

The Toronto East Quadrant Local Immigration Partnership (LIP), agencies working with immigrants in Scarborough, are launching a new strategy next week to prepare for the years 2017 to 2020.

Much has happened to the area since the LIP started working in 2012, says Irmi Hutfless, its manager.

Compared to the rest of Toronto, Scarborough hasn’t grown as much and the population is older overall. That means having to pay more attention to the needs of seniors and senior immigrants, Hutfless said.

The strategy, hopefully in tandem with a more detailed action plan, launches at Centennial College Event Centre, 941 Progress Avenue, from 2 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 22.
