Metropolis 2011 National Conference Video Presentation

The 13th National Metropolis Conference, "Bringing the World to Canada", took place in Vancouver in March of this year and was attended by more than 1,100 participants from the policy-making, practitioner and research fields. Given the large distance from Ottawa, fewer government participants from the National Capital Region were able to participate in this conference than in previous years. In response, the Metropolis Secretariat will showcase plenary videos throughout the month of August to give policy-makers in Ottawa a chance to hear expert presentations from what was one of our most successful events to date.

The video presentations will be accompanied by guest speakers who will field questions and participate in the discussion following the presentations. All viewings will be held in the Citizenship and Immigration Videoconference Room located on the second floor of the Jean Edmonds South Tower at 365 Laurier West.y, cooperation and hard work in helping to build an integrated society for all in Canada.

Upcoming Publication

The purpose of this magazine is to highlight current research findings and best/practices by Canadian and international researchers, policy-makers and community practitioners on discrimination and workplace racism, including important precursors and outcomes. This magazine will be released at the 14th National Metropolis Conference in Toronto next March.
