The Greater Moncton LIP action plans

Since its inception in January 2016, the Greater Moncton LIP has created four working groups in order to focus priorities and achieve its goals.

Entrepreneurship

The Entrepreneurship LIP working group has established four key priorities: communications, business support for PNP entrepreneurs, attraction and support of entrepreneurs from the francophone community, and international students. Some of the action items include: exploring increased partnership with Destination Canada, increasing awareness of networking events being held in the community, and improving business settlement services to newly arrived immigrants. 

Labour Market

The Labour Market LIP working group has established four key priorities: communications, international students as a conduit for immigration, aligning recruiting efforts with demand for labour, ensuring alignment and coordination of immigrant settlement and retention services, and investigating funding opportunities for mentorship program. Some of the action items include: increase the engagement of the business community, expanding the ‘Get Connected’ program, and eliminating gaps to increase the number of newcomers accessing services offered. 

Francophone Immigration

The Francophone Immigration LIP working group has established five key priorities: communications, developing a research program on Francophone immigration in Moncton, diversifying the Francophone immigrant recruitment pool, promoting official language courses, and participation from committees and promotion of cultural activities. Some of the action items include: creating an overview of existing language classes, and develop synergies between stakeholders. 

Welcoming Communities

The Welcoming Communities LIP working group has established three key priorities: expanding public awareness, fostering more immigrant-friendly education, public and personal services, and creating a ‘living library’ at the Moncton Public Library. Some of the action items include: implementing a focused awareness campaign in the Greater Moncton area by sharing success stories, and offering Cultural Competency training to a wider group of interested parties.
