The Hamilton Immigration Partnership Council

Serving Recovers communities:

We have a vision for Hamilton.

Hamilton welcomes newcomers, celebrates diversity, and is a place for everyone to call home.

Created in 2009, the Hamilton Immigration Partnership Council (HIPC) aims to make this vision a reality. HIPC brings together community leaders and form partnerships within the community to coordinate and enhance the delivery of services to newcomers.

By collaborating with local partners, HIPC leads initiatives for the successful integration of newcomers to Hamilton and the creation of a welcoming community.
