Our Core Funder

The initial Gateway project is funded primarily by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) as a five-year pilot project. Immigrant Services Calgary was awarded funding from the IRCC to manage and facilitate the implementation of Gateway, in collaboration with Southern Alberta agencies.

Our Key Technology Development Partner

Gateway is powered by “K2: Pathway to Settlement”, a custom configuration of Salesforce, the well known cloud-based Client Relationship Management (CRM) technology. K2 was developed, with funding from IRCC, as a Standardized Needs Assessment and Referral pilot project by the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario (YSWO) Settlement Services team. The K2 pilot has been operating in the Windsor-Essex region in Ontario since March 2020 with a collaboration of agencies branded the “WE Value Partnership”.
