The 2020 National Citizenship and Immigration Conference

NCIC 2020: positioning you for success in a changing immigration landscape
CAPIC is thrilled to launch the 2020 Virtual National Citizenship and Immigration Conference. We have redefined our conference experience to meet your professional needs in the post-pandemic environment. From the comfort of your home or office, you will enjoy our innovative and user-friendly platform, with many opportunities for learning, networking, and engagement.

NCIC 2020’s virtual setting contains two days of valuable content and will address topics such as artificial intelligence, changing labour needs, and the evolving dynamics of international education. Sessions will be devoted to aspects of managing your business. Our conference features dedicated opportunities to mingle and network with colleagues, including at our pre-conference “Launch Gathering” and our beloved “Celebration of Excellence” gala.

As we commemorate the 15th anniversary of our celebrated event, our goal is to provide attendees with practical information, essential industry knowledge, and vital connection opportunities. Government speakers and industry specialists will highlight their knowledge and experience through panel sessions, roundtable discussions, breakout sessions, and workshops. Participants will have plenty of CPD learning opportunities enhanced with practical tips, case studies, and live and recorded sessions. Rest assured, each session at NCIC 2020 will address the potential short-term and long-term effects of COVID-19.

Our world has profoundly changed. Join us, the Future Starts Now!
