Who are we?


The mission of Immigration Partnership Winnipeg (IPW) is to foster a welcoming and inclusive community for newcomers in Winnipeg. Through collaboration and advocacy, IPW aims to address barriers, promote equity, and support successful settlement and integration. The goal is to create an environment where newcomers can thrive and contribute to the city’s social and economic fabric.


Through collaboration and coordination, IPW aims to address the unique needs and challenges faced by newcomers, promote inclusive policies and practices, and create a supportive environment for their successful integration into the community. By bringing together various stakeholders and advocating for change, IPW strives to ensure that newcomers have equal opportunities and access to resources, fostering a diverse and vibrant city.

Strategic Plan

The IPW Strategic Planning Session Report and Draft Strategic Plan for 2021-2025 outlines the organization’s approach, strategic goals, and anticipated outcomes. The approach includes community-centered learning, responsiveness, anti-racism, and working in good spirit. The strategic goals focus on pandemic recovery, mental health support, Indigenous-newcomer relations, and addressing systemic racism in law enforcement. The plan aims to address the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on newcomers, support culturally responsive mental health services, strengthen Indigenous-newcomer relationships, and work towards a more equitable justice system. The plan was developed with input from stakeholders and the IPW Council.
