Sharing Settlement and Integration Practices that Work

Pathways to Prosperity (P2P) has been contracted by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to design, implement, and evaluate a process for identifying and sharing promising practices in settlement and integration with an empirical basis for their effectiveness. Over a two-year period, P2P will produce 25 videos and accompanying briefs on promising practices in the immigrant settlement and integration sector, targeting a range of service areas and client groups.

Promising practices are 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 effectiveness, which can be empirically measured as successful outcomes of the practice. Our approach will focus not only on identifying truly promising practices, but on analyzing and sharing key features that can be replicated. Promising practices may have faced challenges in their initial implementation, and these challenges will also be considered and analyzed so that others can learn from these experiences.

The Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies of BC (AMSSA) has been contracted to co-lead and coordinate the project. The Canadian Immigrant Settlement Sector Alliance (CISSA-ACSEI) and Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) are central partners on this project.
