Immigration Symposium: Immigration, Social Justice, and the Common Good: Views from the Okanagan

A discussion on the impact of Canadian policy on immigrants, refugees and temporary foreign workers.

Two key areas of concern will be addressed through a number of panel discussions:

1) The difficulties in the current system for community groups interested in sponsoring people, and help settle and support refugees, which is creating challenges in achieving refugee resettlement goals and effective outcomes. 

2) The consequences of immigration policies and practices shaped solely by economics – such as the temporary foreign worker program – for achieving social and social justice related goals.
