SOSLIP Announces
WELCOME 2016 Summit

The South Okanagan | Similkameen Local Immigration Partnership (SOS LIP) is excited to announce WELCOME 2016 - A Welcoming Communities Summit to be held at Okanagan College this June.

Integration is a two way process.  It involves commitment on the part of the immigrants and refugees to adapt to life in Canada and a commitment from Canadians as individuals, employers, educators, and community, to welcome and embrace new population and cultures.

Let's Talk Jobs
