International Metropolis Conference, Ottawa 2019

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will host the International Metropolis Conference 2019 in Ottawa and Gatineau, Canada, from June 24 to 28, 2019.

The International Metropolis Conference is the largest annual international gathering of experts from around the world representing academia, government and civil society in the fields of migration, integration and diversity. The Conference will promote knowledge sharing among international partners and organizations and will provide an excellent opportunity to interact with representatives from all levels of government, the settlement sector, business and non-governmental organizations as well as university researchers.

The program for the 2019 Conference echoes the approach that Canada has adopted with respect to immigration, integration, diversity and inclusion, and it reflects pressing public policy issues of international concern, including the international migration order and the quest for international governance; managing immigration for development purposes; issues surrounding vulnerable populations; and the plight of internally displaced persons (IDPs).

Internationally renowned speakers will participate in eight plenary sessions at the International Metropolis Congress 2019. Approximately 130 simultaneous workshops and a rich cultural program including site visits will be offered during the Conference.
