PNT LGBTQ+ Newcomers Settlement Conference Comes to a Close

The Prairie & Northwest Territories (PNT) LGBTQ+ Newcomers Settlement Conference  took place Monday September 25th and Tuesday September 26th in Calgary. The conference was sponsored by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and hosted by the Centre for Newcomers.

The conference looked to exchange ideas from across the region, to explore service provision gaps and strengths; and to share proven, best and promising practices with the end goal of strengthening LGBTQ New Canadians, while helping them avoid the intersectional challenges associated with being LGBTQ and new to Canada.

CFN would like to thank IRCC, each and every one of the speakers and presenters, along with the volunteers, who when combined, made the conference a great success. Stay tuned for material presented at the conference to be shared soon. For photos of the two-day event CLICK HERE and to watch some highlights of the conference simply click below.
