Presented at the P2P 2021 Workshop Series, this session introduced the Newcomer Insight Collaborative (NIC). The NIC is a new model and platform that brings organizations together to make better use of their service delivery data for program planning and development.

The Newcomer Insight Collaborative is an IRCC SDI-funded university-community partnership initiative. The goal is to tackle challenges of data and research capacity in the non-profit sector. The session explored the practical ways in which organizations can work together on data collaboratives, how we can compare pre and post COVID-19 service delivery and the importance of current and relevant data analysis during times of rapid change.
