South Central Regional Immigration Partnership (SCRIP)

Address: 60 Athabasca Street East Moose Jaw, SK, Canada S6H 0L2

Why an Immigration Partnership?

The work of orienting and welcoming newcomers and settling them into their new environment is the responsibility of settlement agencies like MJMC, right?

While settlement service providing organizations like MJMC are irreplaceable in addressing the specialized needs of newcomers and in encouraging communities to step up their “welcome game”, integration can only be accomplished to the extent that it originates in each and every community player, whether individual or organizational.  Newcomer adaptation, as each individual encounters and acclimatizes to their new surroundings, is one half of the equation.  The other half, however, involves the community grasping its role in the shared benefits that result when residents can fully engage in their societies, and as a result of this, acts to bring about this outcome.
