What happens when temporary becomes permanent?

Fecha y hora

2012.03.03, 4:00 PM translation missing: es.time.to 5:30 PM


Recent policy changes are challenging the premise of temporary labour programs as more pathways to permanent residency are established. This workshop offers a pan-Canadian perspective on transitions to permanency, highlighting implications for future immigration policy. The panel will discuss associated challenges and opportunities for immigrants, receiving communities, and Canadian society.
