Pathways to Prosperity Virtual Workshop Series

Pathways to Prosperity is pleased to be launching a new workshop series that will take place on the third Tuesday of each month at 1:00 – 2:15 PM ET, starting in June 2024. These sessions will present results from projects conducted by P2P and its partners, and discussions on current issues of wide interest. They are open to all, but registration is required.


The first workshop will take place on Tuesday June 18 at 1:00 PM ET and will focus on Promoting Positive Attitudes toward Immigrants and Immigration in Smaller Canadian Communities.

As regionalization programs are implemented and smaller communities seek to become more welcoming to newcomers, a critical issue is the attitudes of members of the receiving community to immigrants and immigration. This workshop focuses on some of the recent results we have obtained from analyses of the P2P survey on immigration attitudes in smaller Canadian communities. In addition, we provide recommendations and showcase how a small community works to promote more favorable attitudes that contribute to welcoming communities and the attraction and retention of immigrants.

On Tuesday July 16 at 1:00 PM ET, the workshop will focus on How Do Provincial and Municipal Governments Utilize Research?

How do governments use research? How can academics improve the impact of their research? Past P2P workshops have examined these questions among federal government departments. In this workshop, we expand the question to examine the use of research among provincial and municipal governments. This workshop is ideal for academics, graduate students, and independent researchers interested in designing, conducting, and disseminating policy-relevant research, as well as practitioners interested in improving the relevance of evidence-based data collection within their organizations.
