CBLIP: Apply to Join the Immigrant Advisory Table

The Cape Breton Local Immigration Partnership (CBLIP) is a collaborative initiative designed to foster welcoming communities that support the full participation of newcomers in the social, economic, political and cultural life of Cape Breton-Unama'ki.

Thank you for your interest in being part of the CBLIP Immigrant Advisory Table (IAT).

IAT members are people who were born outside of Canada, live in Cape Breton and bring living experience to this role. The IAT welcomes members of all backgrounds. We ask many questions on this application form so that we can ensure people with different experiences can participate. Your answers will be shared with the IAT Co-Chairs for their review.

If you would like to apply to join the Immigrant Advisory Group, please complete the application form below. If you would like to answer these questions in person or by phone, please contact us. Please review the CBLIP Terms of Reference prior to submitting your application.

Please note that all available seats for IAT members who live in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) are currently full. If you submit an application, we will add you to the waitlist for consideration when spaces are next available.

If you are involved, or have been involved, with any social, sports, cultural, religious, non-profit, or other community groups in Cape Breton, please list those here.
This could include any skills or knowledge, experience, resources, connections, or anything else you could contribute.
