Ottawa Immigration Forum
The Ottawa Immigration Forum is part of the OLIP governance structure and supports the community-wide implementation of the Ottawa Immigration Strategy (OIS). The Forum is an annual event that highlights collective progress on the goals of the OIS, enables public discussion on ways to remove remaining barriers, and sustains collaborative leadership on integration issues in Ottawa.
The Forum provides a space for community-wide engagement, mutual learning, and the exchange of ideas on immigrant integration. The Forum fosters partnerships among a wide range of stakeholders, which is instrumental to service alignment and coordination. Forum participants come from all levels of government, service providing organizations, school boards, universities and colleges, think tanks, employers, and immigrant communities.
Celebration is an important aspect of the Forum, which puts a spotlight on the advantages of immigration and the achievements that our community has made to facilitate immigrant integration for the benefit of all Ottawans.
The theme of the annual Forum and its content is defined collaboratively by the OLIP partners with inspiration drawn from the work of key stakeholders. The Forum is hosted by the OLIP Council.
