Greater Victoria Local Immigration Partnership Challenge Dialogue Workshop
Tue, 18 April 2017, 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM PDT
Want to ensure Greater Victoria is a more welcoming and inclusive community for newcomer immigrants and refugees?
The Greater Victoria Local Immigration Partnership (GVLIP) invites you to this dynamic and interactive day-long workshop to test ideas, explore options, gather input, and check assumptions around newcomer settlement and integration.
You, your community or your organization have a stake in how we attract, welcome and integrate newcomers to Greater Victoria. During this workshop, we will engage with a diverse group of stakeholders to imagine, explore and align on a set of key goals and to develop a strategic framework to strengthen Greater Victoria's capacity to attract and retain newcomers.
This workshop will be facilitated by Lead Facilitator Keith Jones utilizing the innovative Challenge Dialogue System. Keith has been working as a consultant with the GVLIP to help develop a collaborative immigration integration strategic plan for the Greater Victoria region.
A complimentary lunch will be served.
Please note that registration may be limited. Priority will be given to stakeholders and community members who represent key priority sectors such as health, education, housing, business, cultural groups, etc.
A Workshop Workbook will be sent out to each registrant prior to the April 18th workshop.
Priority will be given to participants who have completed the Challenge Paper and Dialogue Survey and who represent a key stakeholder group.
If you have not already done so, workshop participants are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to read the GVLIP Challenge Dialogue Paper and share your responses to the Dialogue Questions Survey online. Deadline to respond to the survey: Monday, April 3, 9am.
