from Chilliwack to Boston Bar

We work together to make our community

We generate partnerships that increase inclusion and equity for immigrants in the upper Fraser Valley. Together we can support vibrant newcomer populations through events, research, advocacy, and more.

What is Chilliwack LIP?

Local Immigration Partnerships (LIPs) are collaborative community initiatives found across Canada, designed to facilitate the successful integration of immigrants and refugees by coordinating services and resources.

The Chilliwack LIP serves the Upper Fraser Valley from Chilliwack to Boston Bar, aiming to bridge the gap between newcomers and existing services, creating a seamless integration process that benefits everyone involved.
