Join us for the 18th National Citizenship and Immigration Conference (NCIC) in Winnipeg, Manitoba!

The NCIC will be held at the RBC Centre that is located on Treaty One Territory, the home and traditional lands of the Anishinaabe (Ojibwe), Ininew (Cree), and Dakota peoples, and in the National Homeland of the Red River Metis. It is acknowledged that clean drinking water comes from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, in Treaty Three Territory 

Winnipeg has served as Canada's immigration gateway to the West and a landing point for many as they have begun their journey in Canada. Inspired by this rich and significant immigration backdrop, NCIC 2023 will bring inclusion, diversity, and innovation as we explore what is taking place in the Canadian immigration world.

This year's Gala will be held at the stunning Canadian Museum of Human Rights, where the struggle for many immigrants have been chronicled. With this in mind, we will chronicle our journey together, as we dissect the challenges ahead and help to cultivate and improve paths for all. Join us as we move forward on this immigration path and be part of something great!

    Gala Venue

    Museum of Human Rights

    85 Israel Asper Way,
    Winnipeg, MB R3C 0L5

    (Wed, June 7)

    In 2000, Israel Asper began to imagine a world‐class human rights centre for Canada. A few short years later, in April 2003, plans for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights were announced by Asper and his supporters. Winnipeg, situated near the longitudinal centre of Canada and the heart of the continent, would play home to the new Museum. The location at The Forks, where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet, also serves a deeper significance. For thousands of years, Indigenous people followed its waterways for peacemaking, dialogue and trade. Today this ancestral land stands as a National Historic Site and the home to the Museum. Six months after the announcement of the Museum, Asper passed away. But his family and the Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights carried on his mission to establish an iconic site where human rights education and discussion could take place. https://humanrights.ca/
