In partnership with all our members, MANSO can play an important role in identifying issues that positively and negatively affect the integration of newcomers, which means that we can inform and enrich many policy conversations. We believe it will strengthen our work with government and the general public to identify areas of consensus or common ground on policy issues among our membership, and to be able to “speak with one voice” on issues of key concern. The following resolutions were developed by our members and adopted during MANSO’s AGM on June 12th, 2019:

2019-1 Affordable and Appropriate Housing
2019-2 Availability of Stage 2 (Canadian Language Benchmark 5-8) Language Classes
2019-3 Policy Changes to Transportation Loans for Refugees
2019-4 Access Without Fear Policy
2019-5 Changes to Personal Information Requirements for Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression (SOGIE) Newcomers
2019-6 Addressing Educational Barriers for Newcomer Youth Linked to the ‘E’ Credit System
