Pathways to Prosperity 2019 National Conference

1 November 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Economic Integration and Support for New Immigrants in Destinations of Growth

On November 1st, 2019 ICTC will be presenting at the Pathways to Prosperity 2019 National Conference in Toronto, Ontario at the Westin Harbour Castle.  We would like to extend an invitation to you to join us between 1:30pm – 3:30 pm EDT for our workshop on Economic Integration and Support for New Immigrants in Destinations of Growth! 

Join us and our wonderful partners from the Calgary Catholic Immigration Services, Manitoba Start and the Regina Open Door Society who will be presenting on important topics that foster discussion about the successful integration of immigrants within Canada.

Immigration fuels population and labour-force growth in Canada, mainly in major cities where most newcomers settle. To spread the benefits of immigration more evenly, government policies promote greater economic integration of newcomers and support for their businesses in smaller urban and rural communities. Through incentives and opportunities, immigrants are enticed to settle in these areas where their presence in the labour force or their new businesses could boost the economy and produce benefits for their communities. In this workshop, three community agencies share best practices spurring economic integration of newcomers in destinations of growth, including smaller cities and rural areas.
