In almost every report about innovation, technology, and capacity building in the Canadian immigrant and refugee-serving sector, building knowledge transfer, mobilization, and sharing capacity in the sector comes up. This Pathways to Prosperity project seeks to share innovative sector approaches to client service delivery and sector capacity:
"Promising practices are innovative practices that have an objective basis for claiming effectiveness in achieving their stated aims and have the potential for replication. Thus, promising practices are defined in terms of their innovation and effectiveness, which can be empirically measured as successful outcomes of the practices. Our approach focuses not only on identifying truly promising practices, but on analyzing and sharing key features that can be replicated. Promising practices may have faced challenges in their initial implementation, and these challenges are also considered and analyzed so that others can learn from these experiences."
Each practice has a video featured practice leads outlining their work and is summarized in a document with the following template:
