The Jakobstad Region's Integration Model

In the integration model of the Jakobstad region, the integration work permeates all sections. The immigration work has become more efficient thanks to a new organizational model, new collaborations and more structured networks for both authorities and volunteers. The current process is a continuation of a collaboration between the Jakobstad, Larsmo, Kronoby, Nykarleby and Pedersöre municipalities, which began in 2010.

While having different needs, the municipalities in the region still benefit greatly from having a common plan and goal and similar ways of fulfilling it. Equal service is important in a region where the municipalities are similar.

The Jakobstad region's integration model is built on networking with a continuous dialogue. The networking is central and covers many sections.
