The Project

The Pathways to Prosperity Partnership (P2P) is an alliance dedicated to fostering welcoming communities that promote the economic, social and civic integration of migrants and minorities in Canada. We also help communities grow their economies, renew their populace, and reinvigorate their labour markets by fully welcoming immigrants, international students and temporary foreign workers. Two areas of special concern are Northern and rural communities, and Francophone minorities outside of Quebec.

The Partnership includes all key federal and provincial migration ministries; municipalities; national, regional, and local organizations involved in newcomer settlement; and researchers from over fifty universities. The main activities of the Partnership are primary and secondary research, knowledge transfer, education, and mutual learning. Our activities are both national in scope and region-specific, with a particular focus on comparative perspectives and best practices.  Our methods bring together academic scholarship with local expertise and detailed government program knowledge.  This allows us to provide practical, empirically-based advice on policies, programs and agency practices.
