The Promise of Migration
The Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada will host the International Metropolis Conference 2019, the largest annual international gathering of world experts from academia, governments and civil society in the fields of migration, integration and diversity. The conference’s program will reflect both Canadian and international strategies regarding immigration, integration, diversity and inclusion.
International migration is at the top of the policy agenda for many countries. The conference will provide delegates from around the world with the opportunity to exchange research and best practices and to forge new partnerships through open dialogue.
We expect more than 1000 delegates to attend. We encourage you to read the welcome messages from the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship; the Mayor of Ottawa; and the Mayor of Gatineau.
We secured rooms at a selection of hotels surrounding the conference venue. There are discounted rates for attendees of the conference.
