The National Metropolis Conference is an annual forum for researchers, policy makers, representatives from community and settlement organizations. These organizations get together to share and exchange knowledge and experience in the field of immigration and settlement. The 18th National Metropolis Conference will be held from March 3-5 at the Westin Harbour Castle, in Toronto, Ontario. The 2016 National Metropolis Conference will focus on future immigration trends and policies and the challenges and opportunities that they create for Canadian society. The conference will include four plenary panels with distinguished speakers and workshop and round table sessions on a wide variety of topics related to immigration and diversity. We anticipate several hundred participants from Canada and abroad.
