Retrouvez-nous à la dix-huitième Conférence nationale sur la citoyenneté et l’immigration, à Winnipeg, Manitoba!
Retrouvez-nous à la dix-huitième Conférence nationale sur la citoyenneté et l’immigration (CNCI), à Winnipeg, Manitoba! Ensemble, nous apprendrons, réseauterons et continuerons de feuilleter les pages de l’histoire de l’immigration au Canada. Winnipeg a été la porte d’entrée des immigrants dans l’Ouest du Canada et le point de chute de bien d’autres qui ont entamé leur périple dans ce pays. Sur cette toile de fond aussi foisonnante d’inspiration que riche de symboles, l’édition 2023 de la CNCI s’attachera à promouvoir les notions d’inclusion, de diversité et d’innovation tout en explorant l’évolution du monde de l’immigration au Canada. Bien entendu, vous bénéficierez des dernières informations sur les programmes, explorerez de nouvelles pistes et envisagerez des solutions susceptibles d’aplanir les nombreuses difficultés qui sont fréquentes dans le secteur de l’immigration. Pour ce faire, vous aurez la possibilité d’assister à des ateliers pratiques, des groupes de discussion, des tables rondes ou encore des conférences qui viendront compléter les connaissances des membres de l’auditoire et enrichir leur panoplie d’outils. Quant au Gala, il se tiendra au magnifique Musée canadien pour les droits de la personne qui a documenté les épreuves de nombreux immigrants. C’est pourquoi, à notre tour, nous documenterons notre aventure tout en décortiquant les difficultés et traçant et recherchant les pistes qui nous permettront d’aller de l’avant, étant entendu qu’il y a de la place pour tous et que nous sommes tous égaux. Belle aventure, direz-vous, mais nous n’en sommes pas moins impatients d’amorcer notre périple! Retrouvez-nous sur les routes des migrations pour faire partie d’une si grandiose entreprise!
