Call for Nominations

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

A new Call for Nominations of Promising Practices is now open and we are seeking nominations of promising practices from a variety of stakeholders involved in the settlement and integration of immigrants and refugees across Canada. Promising practices are innovative practices that have evidence of their effectiveness and that have the potential for others to replicate them. Our approach focuses not only on identifying truly promising practices, but on analyzing and sharing key features that can be used by others to develop or improve their own practices. Practices do not have to be IRCC funded to be nominated, 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).
