Representation on the London and Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership
The Centre for Research on Migration and Ethnic Relations has been involved in the London and Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership (LMLIP) since its inception, and is the official research arm of the LMLIP. The London and Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership is a collaborative community initiative designed to strengthen the role of the community in integrating immigrants, funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The MER Centre Director, Victoria Esses, sits on the Central Council of the LMLIP, and faculty and graduate student members of MER are well-represented on the six LMLIP subcouncils. We have participated in all of the LMLIP outreach activities and events, and the role of the MER Centre in the LMLIP has been officially recognized at public LMLIP events.
