Pathways to Prosperity 2018 National Conference

The Sixth Annual Pathways to Prosperity National Conference will take place in Montreal on Thursday and Friday, November 22-23, 2018. On Wednesday, November 21 we will be hosting a full-day preconference of Local Immigration Partnerships. Join researchers, service providers, Local Immigration Partnerships, Réseaux en immigration francophone, representatives of all levels of government and others working in the area of immigration for a three-day event on immigration in an increasingly complex environment.

The theme of this year’s P2P Conference is Borders, Welcoming Communities, and the Politicization of Immigration: Challenges and Opportunities Surrounding the Dynamic Movement of People. The crossing of borders and the politicization of immigration are increasingly salient issues for Canadians and internationally, yet we must not lose focus on the fact that a successful immigration program includes welcoming communities and recognition of the individual people involved in migration. The conference will address the challenges and opportunities these facets of immigration present to us today. The conference will include plenary sessions, workshops, a poster session, and opportunities to network with colleagues. More than 400 attendees are expected to participate.
