The National Metropolis Conference is an annual forum for researchers, policy makers, representatives from community and settlement organizations to get together to share and exchange knowledge and experience in the field of immigration and settlement. This year, the 16th National Metropolis Conference was held from March 12 to 15, 2014 in Gatineau, Quebec.
