Call for Nominations

Developing an Evidence Base and Sharing Settlement and Integration Practices that Work (DEB)

A new Call for Nominations is now open and you are invited to participate in this research project through nomination of one or more promising practices.

Promising practices are innovative practices that have an objective basis for claiming effectiveness in achieving their stated aims and that have the potential for replication. Thus, promising practices are defined in terms of their innovation and effectiveness, which can be empirically measured as successful outcomes of the practice. Our approach focuses not only on identifying truly promising practices, but on analyzing and sharing key features that can be replicated.

P2P is seeking nominations of promising practices from a variety of stakeholders involved in the settlement and integration of immigrants and refugees across Canada. Practices do not have to be IRCC funded and can be self-nominated. Practices must be able to demonstrate their effectiveness through an external evaluation or within-organization measurement of outcomes that can be shared (e.g., website URL; you would be able to send it).
