Systems Advocacy & Policy Work
Many don't acknowledge the new populations and their needs when it comes to current systems and policies. System advocacy is essential towards creating significant change to make provided services more inclusive of new communities. Ultimately, the goal is for underrepresented groups to gain a voice or a seat at the table when policy decisions are made on their behalf. The IRCM is then passionate about paving a path for new Mainers to have their culturally and linguistically specific needs met to improve their living and conditions and feel represented in their new community.
