Canadian Immigration Summit 2018

The Immigrant Employment Council of BC is pleased to support the Canadian Immigration Summit 2018. Due to its ageing population and low birth rate, Canada increasingly relies on immigrants to spur economic growth. Maintaining a strong settlement program equips newcomers with the tools they need to thrive. Join us at the Canadian Immigration Summit 2018: Strengthening Our Economy and Settlement Program, on May 30-31, 2018 in Ottawa. Explore the most pressing immigration issues facing Canada today. Network with major stakeholders from government, business, immigration law and consulting, education, and immigrant-serving organizations to discuss the future of immigration in Canada.
