Maureen Brown was a presenter at this year’s national Metropolis Conference held in Montreal March 18-21st. Metropolis is an international network of researchers, planners, academics and municipal experts who produce leading edge data and information on migration, diversity and immigrant integration. This year’s theme, Immigration and Diversity–Crossroads of Cultures: Engine of Economic Development, explored the links between economic development, labor force needs and immigration policy. As a guest expert on the Peel Region team of delegates, Maureen discussed critical lessons learned in equipping municipalities to tap into immigrant populations that will increasingly be a force in their economic progress.
