Joins us for a full day of knowledge exchange on the immigration and settlement practices in Canada.

The “Resilience, Migration and Settlement: Knowledge Exchange Event” will showcase multiple perspectives from policy makers, researchers and community leaders on settlement practices in Canada.

Panel 1: What did we learn from settling privately sponsored and government assisted Syrian refugees? This panel will look at refugee private sponsorships and government refugee assistance programs. Panelists will share their experiences of Syrian refugees’ settlement and discuss good practices transferable to other groups of refugees.

Panel 2: Impacts of Local Immigration Partnerships(LIPS) for planning Immigrant Integration: The reality and the aspirations

This panel will demystify the role of local immigration partnerships. Panelists will also discuss other settlement models that exist across the country, particularly in Quebec, and how the combination of these structures can enhance immigrant’s settlement in Canada.

Panel 3 title: Sanctuary cities: what are they good for?

This panel will share research findings and community knowledge on sanctuary cities. Researchers and policy makers will exchange ideas and perspectives on Sanctuary Cities in Canada.

The “Resilience, Migration and Settlement: Knowledge Exchange Event” will be the opportunity for constructive interactions between academics, policy makers, community leaders and the public.
