We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the Ninth Annual Pathways to Prosperity National Conference and the Pathways to Prosperity Conference for Local Immigration Partnerships and Réseaux en immigration francophone, to take place at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa on Monday November 8 to Wednesday November 10, 2021. There will also be virtual access to some components of the Conference for those who cannot attend in person. In addition, all registrants will have access to the Virtual Workshop Series to take place in January – March 2022.
The theme for this year’s conference is: Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose: Post-COVID Strategies to Address Enduring Challenges in the Settlement and Integration of Newcomers in Canada. This theme acknowledges that many of the topics that we will be covering are not new but instead are enduring issues that require our sustained attention in order to support the settlement and integration of newcomers in Canada in the post-COVID era. It is not enough to cover these topics as a one-off in a single conference or event. We must work to engage with them at a deep level in order to truly understand and promote meaningful change. Topics to be highlighted will include anti-racism initiatives and initiatives to address Islamophobia, strategies for supporting Indigenous-immigrant relations, and how to optimize immigration and settlement in Canada post-pandemic for the benefit of all using our research, policy and practice.
