Now in its seventh year, the Canadian Immigration Virtual Summit will explore how COVID-19 is impacting the immigration system and the lives of newcomers. It will also ask how Canada can leverage immigration to speed up economic recovery while continuing to offer a good quality of life for newcomers from around the world.

Join over 300 delegates online to discuss the major immigration-related issues facing your organization. Through this online experience’s presentations and interactive sessions, you will:

  • Learn and discuss how COVID-19 and related public health measures are impacting newcomers and the Canadian immigration system.
  • Be part of engaging early discussions on immigration’s role in our post-pandemic economic recovery.
  • Explore Canada’s unique position in this historic moment to attract newcomers, help them find success and fulfillment, and grow the economy over the long term.
  • Hear and share perspectives on key businesses, sectors, markets, and communities that will look to immigration to spur growth and recovery.
  • Obtain inspired learning, grounded in qualitative and quantitative research.

We’ll explore the following themes:

Charting a path

Predicting immigration trends in an uncertain time

Leave no one behind

Including marginalized groups in the post-COVID economy

Mapping the sector

Supports and services for immigrants fitting together

Maximizing benefits

Enhancing newcomer economic success for their benefit and Canada’s
