The WE Value team presented to Marie Mota-Lee, Senior Policy Analyst, Settlement and Integration Policy (SIP), IRCC.

Marie works specifically on IRCC’s  Needs  Assessments  and  Referrals policy and was connected with us as she had heard of our project and was interested in learning more about our approach to a Capacity-Focused Assessment. We provided a high level presentation that highlighted bigger picture components of the project.

We focused on the theory, step by step development, and planned next steps of our assessment questionnaire. Marie remained very enthusiastic, engaged, and had many great questions along the way. She was also able to share some great feedback and words of encouragement. Her support of our approach and the potential benefits that may come from our project was very much appreciated and we look forward to updating her with key milestones as she requested.
