Fredericton's Local Immigration Partnership

Fredericton's Local Immigration Partnership (FLIP) is a collaborative community initiative designed to improve newcomer settlement, integration and to strengthen Fredericton's ability to better address the needs of immigrants.

The FLIP was formed in May 2015 by the Fredericton community with the support of the Canadian Federal Government. Led by Ignite Fredericton, its purpose is to establish a welcoming and inclusive community through multi-level collaboration.

FLIP has an advisory board called the Newcomers Partnership Council (NPC) or LIP Council, which is the governing advisory board for four core working groups which are:

Creation Retention Network

Reduction Network


Cultural Inclusion & Behaviour Change Network

As well as two collaborative working groups which are:

Business Advocacy Committee for Newcomers Entrepreneurs (Governed by FCoC)

Cultural Diversity & Advisory Committee for Public Safety (Governed by Fredericton Police Force)
