In June 2008 the Ministry of Advanced Education and Labour Market Development (which in October 2010 became the Ministry of Regional Economic and Skills Development) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Ministry of Attorney General (MAG) to fund three projects involving the use of Public Legal Education and Information (PLEI) to serve new immigrants and refugees.∗ One of these projects was the Collaborative Consortium Project, which is the subject of this evaluation. Throughout the lifetime of the project, the Consortium has been known and advertised as the Immigrant PLEI Consortium (IPC). This name and acronym is therefore used in this report.
The IPC began in May 2009 and is funded until March 31, 2011. It grew out of the activities of the PLEI Working Group, and now includes the twelve agencies listed in the next paragraph. Its goal is to increase the level of integration between PLEI and settlement workers serving new immigrants and refugees.
This is the Final Report for Ministry of Attorney General.
