The COVID-19 Social Impacts Network and Metropolis Canada will be holding a virtual Summit on November 12 & 13, 2020:
The Economic and Social Impact of COVID-19 on Immigration, Integration and Settlement in Canada.
The veritable reshaping of Canada’s economy and society as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on international immigration. Since the outbreak of the contagion there has been a considerable decline in the numbers of immigrants coming to Canada. More than ever, it is critical for service providers, researchers and policy-makers to work together to identify solutions. With this objective in mind, on November 12 and 13, 2020, the COVID-19 Social Impacts Network and Metropolis Canada will be holding a virtual summit on the critical issues confronting Canadians.
We’re inviting a limited number of workshop proposals to be submitted with a particular focus on recommendations aimed at addressing the many challenges in the area of immigration, integration and settlement and ideally employing evidenced-based presentations in response to the ongoing crisis.
For details on workshop topics, please refer to the Call for Proposals.
The website to submit your proposal will be online next week.
