Collective Impact Report

PNSG’s Collective Impact Report 2012-13 provides our stakeholders a broad framework of PNSG’s work and measurement indicators of success.  The report is a starting point of our journey in implementing the Peel Community Plan over the next five years.

The report is anchored around PNSG’s four strategic priorities. These priorities include:

  • Ensuring accessible, client-centred services for all newcomers
  • Creating a continuum of effective employment strategies
  • Enhancing the receptivity of the host community
  • Strengthening the service coordination and planning across Peel Region

The inclusion of newcomers in our economy and community goes beyond providing settlement services. Hence, our planning efforts should take that broader view in consideration.  To make our collaborative work a success, it is crucial that we engage all stakeholders including the mainstream service-providers in our conversations as we design and implement our program and measurement interventions.

Collecting data and measuring results consistently and collaboratively across the sector will ensure our efforts remain aligned and participants hold each other accountable as we work towards achieving our objectives.
