Sector Tables

The five OLIP sector tables are specialized leadership groups that facilitate action on the sectoral priorities of the OIS.  They are composed of key stakeholders of the community.  Members collectively identify feasible ideas and initiatives that advance the strategic priorities and outcomes outlined in the OIS.  They engage partners to develop proposals that respond to community needs and work together to secure funding.  The sector tables play an ongoing role in tracking progress and addressing challenges that may arise.

  4. Language Sector Table
  5. Settlement & Integration Capacity Development Sector Table
