About the NCIC

The year’s theme at CAPIC’s 13th annual National Citizenship & Immigration Conference is “Breakthrough to Excellence.” With a dynamic learning environment, innovative and bold break out sessions, and interactive discussions, conference-goers are sure to gain knowledge and confidence in developing strategies and solutions to solving immigration dilemmas.    While CPD knowledge remains paramount, business skills and learning will also be emphasized! Top speakers from industry and government (IRCC, CBSA, ESDC, IRB, PNPs) will lead the sessions, with focus on trends, changes, and updates to various programs. Industry speakers are challenged to bring their best tips and practical advice, and extra long Q and A sessions are added to ensure there is plenty of discussion. Meeting colleagues, forging new alliances, and exploring business opportunities is guaranteed, and what better place than in Calgary, at the Westin Convention Centre. Come join us, as we strive for excellence together!
