John Howard Society of London & District

Immigrant Community Capacity and Engagement (ICCE) Project

The ICCE Project was developed in response to needs identified by the London and Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership (LMLIP), Justice and Protection Services Sub-Council. Through a collaborative and community development approach, the ICCE Project was intended to build immigrants’ knowledge, understanding and trust in Canadian justice and protection services. The ICCE Project was part of the vision of a larger initiative designed by LMLIP to promote the successful integration of newcomers into the community. Last year, the Society worked with the Mandarin and Urdu speaking communities. This year, the Society is delivering the ICCE project to the French and Amharic speaking communities.
