Register for the BIP Summit

The purpose of the annual BIP Summit is to provide an opportunity where the Brantford Immigration Partnership and Network can reflect on the successes of the past year and plan for the coming year.

On Wednesday, March 9, 2022, join us for this year’s free virtual summit which includes engaging sessions that will facilitate discussions that will help us share our goals and direct our collective work. We will provide information and tools to help local partners and agencies with ongoing challenges that concern the settlement of new Canadians in our community.

This Summit will feature presenters who will share their stories and inspire community development projects that will create a more welcoming community for newcomers to the City of Brantford.
