  • Hamilton Immigration Partnership Council Impact Assessment

    Published: July 2013

    This evaluation explores the impacts of the Hamilton Immigration Partnership’s (HIPC) work since its inception and attempts to quantify partner contributions to the HIPC’s work. Findings show that HIPC partners have contributed between $1,447,638 and $1,518,323 worth of in-kind contributions, direct contributions, and leveraged funds to immigration-related projects in Hamilton since 2009. In terms of impacts, respondents draw on the HIPC’s research reports and resources, are more involved in newcomer issues, and collaborate with other organizations to better meet newcomer needs because of their involvement with the HIPC. Respondents also emphasized communication and information sharing, greater collaboration, and developing or adjusting specific services as key impacts of the HIPC’s work.
