HIPC seeks Council Members with Lived Experience 
Hamilton Immigration Partnership Council (HIPC) is a community table housed within the City of Hamilton and funded by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada. With partners from various sectors – including settlement, education, business, health, social services, and persons with lived experience – we work together to create a welcoming community with relevant and accessible services. HIPC currently has up to two vacancies for persons with lived experience of immigration. The term is one year, with the possibility of renewal.

Summer Reading
We asked our Council Members to share their favorite recent reads that promote Canadian national identity and celebrate our greater diversity locally and globally. If you have any recommended readings, let us know here. The first recommendation comes from Cassandra D'Ambrosio of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce. 

The Time I Loved You is a book by Canadian (Scarborough) author Carrianne Leung. "It's a wonderful coming of age fiction novel that depicts the fine line where childhood meets the realities of adult life, and examines how difficult it is to be true to ourselves at any age. I bought it from local shop, Mixed Media, too!"

Synopsis: The suburbs of the 1970s promised to be heaven on earth—new houses, new status, happiness guaranteed. But in a Scarborough subdivision populated by newcomers from all over the world, a series of sudden catastrophic events reveals that not everyone’s dreams come true. Moving from house to house, Carrianne Leung explores the inner lives behind the tidy front gardens and picture-perfect windows, always returning to June, an irrepressible adolescent Chinese-Canadian coming of age in this shifting world.
