The Huron County Local Immigration Partnership is currently recruiting for several positions on its Council. The Local Immigration Partnership is a community-led group that works towards a coordinated and collaborative approach to newcomer services and integration.

“The County of Huron, through its Local Immigration Partnership, is committed to bringing our stakeholders together to build a welcoming community that attracts, employs and supports newcomers,” says Kristin Crane, Huron County Immigration Liaison.

Council members are sought from a variety of backgrounds, including, but not limited to: newcomer-serving agencies; public service; language and employment training providers; regional employment networks; industry associations; business leaders; health units and networks; public safety; religious organizations; or, cultural organizations/ networks. Council members have the opportunity to shape the experience that new individuals and families have as they arrive to our communities.

“We are looking for people with an interest in community revitalization and newcomer attraction who are passionate about diversity to join other committed and broad-minded volunteers,” says Crane. Members will be chosen through a selection committee based upon experience, geographic location, volunteer or business affiliation and an understanding of newcomer needs.
