To celebrate our 50th anniversary, ISSofBC, in partnership with the Ismaili Centre, Vancouver, has created the New Perspectives series that will feature three public events held from September 2022 to March 2023.
The series aims to bring new voices into debates around immigration in Canada. The topics that will be covered through the series include Indigenous views on immigration, the impact of climate change, and the most pressing issues likely to shape Canada’s future immigration policies.
Immigration is expected to rise in the coming decades. Therefore, the issues that will be discussed in this series have global importance. This is why these events are open to anyone interested in the topic of immigration wherever they may be based.
Event 1: Indigenous views on immigration to Turtle Island
The first event, Indigenous views on immigration to Turtle Island, will be held online on 13th September 2022, and will feature a panel of Indigenous leaders from across Canada, moderated by ISSofBC’s Indigenous Advisor, Kory Wilson.
The event will run from 4.30-6.00pm (Pacific Time, 6.30-8.00pm, Central Standard Time, and 7.30pm – 9.00pm Eastern Time).
