The 10th Annual Pathways to Prosperity National Conference and the Pathways to Prosperity Conference for Local Immigration Partnerships and Réseaux en immigration francophone will take place at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa on Monday November 14 to Wednesday November 16, 2022. There will also be remote 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 2023.

This is an exciting time for the Pathways to Prosperity Partnership. In 2022 we are celebrating 10 years of P2P and a return to an in-person conference, with a twist: the hybrid format. Whether you will be joining us in person or remotely, we have lots of surprises and new activities planned. This is your invitation to join us!

The theme of the conference is Next Gen Canada: Immigration and Diversity as Pathways to Prosperity. To celebrate where we are today and look ahead, we will be honouring the foundations of immigration and settlement in Canada and embarking on a journey of planning for the future. This is a chance to learn from the people who helped build immigration and settlement in Canada and discuss the way forward to continue our successes. It will be an opportunity to share your expertise and experiences, learn from others, catch up with friends and colleagues, and expand your networks. 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.
