The Office of Immigration and Multiculturalism (OIM), Department of Immigration, Population Growth, and Skills (IPGS) is calling for projects to support the social, economic, and cultural integration of newcomers to the province. Programming and initiatives will be funded through the Labour Market Integration for Newcomers (LMIN) Program.


In light of Provincial Government goals, OIM is inviting applications for funding to build upon existing and present innovative programming to address the following priorities.


The 2023-2024 Call for Proposals outlines two streams, Economic Integration and Settlement Services and Supports, under which community partners can submit project proposals.

Stream 1 – Economic Integration

Economic Integration projects will be designed to promote the economic advancement of newcomers to the province.

  • Improve labour market access for newcomers (supporting the removal of barriers such as child care);
  • Foreign Credential Recognition (FCR) navigation;
  • Job Creation and Connection; and,
  • Workplace-based language training.

Stream 2 – Settlement Services and Supports

  • Pre-arrival Settlement Programming;
  • Settlement (rural approaches and projects led by cultural groups will be prioritized);
  • Building Welcoming Communities; and,
  • Intercultural competency and anti-racism training.

The Funding Guidelines 2023-24 provide more details on these themes and priority areas.
