Settlement Allocation Model

Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
June 2005

The Settlement Allocation Model has proven problematic with regards to smaller centres with high proportions of refugees, and centres receiving substantial secondary migration, and grossly inequitable for larger centres;

Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR:

  1. Communicate with CIC requesting that new funding for the settlement sector be allocated on the basis of the following principles:

    a)that small centres, particularly those with a high proportion of refugees to their total immigration, receive sufficient funding to maintain the capacity to meet the demand;b)centres experiencing substantial secondary migration arrivals need to receive sufficient funding to meet the resulting service demands;c)that the current 2-tiered (large region/small region) model be discontinued.

  2. Request an opportunity to hold consultations between CIC and the sector with regards to reforming/replacing the Settlement Allocation Model.
