A Virtual Conference

Pathways to Prosperity is pleased to be holding a virtual conference this year in lieu of our usual annual national conference, with many of the features of our in-person conferences for which we have come to be known. This includes plenaries, a keynote speaker, workshops, posters, exhibitors, and opportunities to network with colleagues. 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.

On Monday November 23 and Tuesday November 24, the P2P Annual National Conference will run from 11:00 AM EST to 4:45 PM EST, with evening activities on November 23 for interested parties. The conference will focus on immigration and (re)settlement in Canada in this time of a worldwide pandemic and increased awareness of the racism and discrimination facing immigrants every day. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities for change now and in the coming years.

On Wednesday November 25, the full day conference for Local Immigration Partnerships and Réseaux en immigration francophone will run from 11:00 AM EST to 4:45 PM EST, focusing on upcoming priorities set by these collaborative enterprises.

Promising Practices

Sharing Settlement and Integration Practices that Work

Pathways to Prosperity is pleased to announce that new videos and briefs on promising practices in settlement and integration are now available here.

Funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the project highlights promising practices in immigrant settlement and integration with an empirical basis for their effectiveness. Our approach focuses not only on identifying truly promising practices, but on analyzing and sharing key features that can be replicated. The project is co-led by the Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies of BC (AMSSA). The Canadian Immigrant Settlement Sector Alliance (CISSA-ACSEI) and Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) are central partners. Pathways to Prosperity will be publishing more videos and briefs in the coming months. We are also pleased to announce that the project has been extended for a further five years, and we will announce the next call for submissions shortly.
