Eastman Immigrant Services (EIS) has been supporting newcomers and immigrants in Southern Manitoba for over 20 years. 

It is funded by the Governments of Canada and Manitoba to working with newcomers and with community partners to support welcoming newcomers to Eastern Manitoba. 

Services include: language support, settlement and employment services, volunteering opportunities and integration programs to help families and individuals succeed and finally contribute to the economy of our country.


More recently, EIS has been hosting the ERIP (Eastman Region Immigration Partnerships), which represents an opportunity for communities to bring together diverse stakeholders to collaborate on and coordinate local strategies and plans for welcoming, settling and integrating newcomers.


Town Council passed Resolution No.2022-166, which reads:

WHEREAS Eastern Immigrant Services has been hosting the ERIP (Eastman Region Immigration Partnerships), which represents an opportunity for communities to bring together diverse stakeholders to collaborate on and coordinate local strategies and plans for welcoming, settling and integrating newcomers;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Council adopt for following policy statement and commitment to action:

The Town of Powerview-Pine Falls recognizes the valuable contributions that newcomers make to our economy and social diversity.  Our Town supports immigration strategies and support services that help newcomers arrive, adapt and truly become part of our community. We value the skills, education, enthusiasm and diverse perspectives that newcomers bring with them. Municipalities are often a first point of contract for newcomers and therefore play a big role to help people feel welcome and to know where to go to meet their various needs. Our Town commits to the following actions to support immigration in the Eastman Region: 

  • Provide a welcoming and supportive atmosphere for newcomers
  • Promote Eastman Immigrant Services (EIS) services on our Town website
  • Refer newcomers to EIS and other community services to meet their needs
