Regional Council received a delegation from Aamna Ashraf, Director, Peel Newcomer Strategy Group (PNSG) who provided information regarding regional alignment and a collective impact report for 2012-2013.
The PNSG was established by the United Way and Region of Peel in 2006 and is a community collaborative designed to enhance the social and economic inclusion of immigrants to the Peel community. PNSG is a strong community partner with an excellent history of working to improve newcomer settlement and integration in Peel Region.
The Collective Impact Report (2012-2013) provides a broad framework for the collaborative work and measurement indicators for success. The report is a starting point to implement the Peel community plan over the next five years.
Through multi-funder support and diverse partnerships, PNSG continues to champion the successful social and economic inclusion of immigrants in Peel.
