Our purpose is to strengthen the role of local communities across the province in integrating and serving the newcomer population.

The Local Immigration Partnership Council (LIPC)
Sub-Committee for Renfrew County

The Local Immigration Partnership Council’s (LIPC) primary purpose is to act as a community advisory body lending direction to the execution of the Rural Mosaic: Building on Strengths and Seizing Opportunities Strategic Plan for Renfrew and Lanark Counties that will serve to employ collaboration, research, and positive strength-based leadership, complemented by a focus on competitive economic sustainability, in order to foster a welcoming and healthy community.

Members of the LIPC will provide leadership, wisdom, and industry-specific knowledge of challenges and opportunities that directly relate to settlement issues. The group will help identify gaps in services for newcomers, help determine best practices for attracting new Canadians to our area, and engage in worthwhile discussions and activities concerning the enhancement of diversity in Renfrew and Lanark Counties as a means to economic stability and growth.

ESL for Adults

In Renfew County, ESL is provided by the Renfrew County District School Board. The program is funded by The Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade and operates under the Ministry's guidelines for eligibility. When ten interested, eligible, and committed students become registered and have completed the language assessment, coordinated by the School Board, an ESL class can be created in the particular community in Renfrew County where the interested parties reside.


In hopes to raise the awareness about this program and to produce the ten eligible students in order to start a new class, the LIP has agreed to promote potential ESL offerings in the communities where the need has arisen.  Posters and newspaper ads have been developed in multiple languages in order to steer interested parties to the LIP general email account.  Once they have responded, LIP staff will screen for basic eligibility and collect the information of the interested party. When the list grows to ten individuals from the community, LIP will liaise with RCDSB in order to create the new class, should all parameters be met by all parties involved. 

If you would like help in creating a new ESL class in your community, please contact us

Coves and beaches speckle the landscape.

After building the world-renowned Rideau Canal, Scottish stonemasons stayed to create some of the oldest and prettiest towns in Canada. Evidence of their craft is seen in over 140 designated heritage properties throughout the County, often by water’s edge. Bring your camera and capture our historically significant “Seven Wonders of Lanark County!”

Generations of residents and visitors have built a strong community spirit that has cultivated small business, events and festivals that speak to our ancestral and geological heritage.

Geographically, Lanark County is a remarkably distinct region within the Frontenac Axis where the Canadian Shield meets the Limestone Plains. This presents a combination of ecological features that offer an especially diverse growth area for native plant species, which attract a variety of birds and wildlife. Residents and visitors enjoy cycling and paddling through these breathtaking natural vistas.

As the Maple Syrup capital of Ontario, our concentration of sugar maple trees creates a dramatic display of fall colours. Visitors from all over the world enjoy this authentic Canadian experience.

Only minutes from the Nation’s Capital, people of the region have access to all the world-class amenities of a major centre. At the same time, they enjoy the relaxed lakeside lifestyle.

Lanark County is a world heritage destination!

<![CDATA[About Renfrew County]]>http://www.immigrationpartnershiprenfrewlanark.com/renfrew-county/about-renfrew-county/http://www.immigrationpartnershiprenfrewlanark.com/renfrew-county/about-renfrew-county/Thu, 23 Jul 2015 7:23:07 -0700For more information on the towns and places in Renfrew County, check out http://www.countyofrenfrew.on.ca/municipalities/ to browse the various websites offered by our local municipalities.

The Ottawa Valley began forming 600 million years ago, and today the land forms a "trench" or "valley" in both the Province of Ontario and the Province of Quebec.  The beautiful and mighty Ottawa River runs through the centre of this land. The land within the watershed of the Ottawa River is known as the "Ottawa Valley".

Renfrew County is located in the heart of the Ottawa Valley, the Province of Ontario in the Dominion of Canada, geographically located in Eastern Ontario.  The County of Renfrew in the Ottawa Valley stretches from the outskirts of Canada's Capital, the City of Ottawa, in the east and along the shores of historic Ottawa River in the Province of Ontario, to the northern tip of Algonquin Park's wilderness in the west.

The County encompasses 17 municipalities, approximately 100,000 residents and has an area of 7,645.68 sq. kms.  The area is rural in nature and is made up of a variety of towns and industries.  Renfrew County is home to a major Canadian scientific research facility, a large military base, a variety of historical sites, over 900 lakes, and 4 river systems.  The Scenery of the area makes this part of Canada unique. The people who live in Renfrew County love their communities and are passionate about sharing the benefits of living in this beautiful region of Ontario.
