You are invited to attend a thought-provoking discussion on “Race, Identity, and Belonging: A Generation Gap?” jointly organized by the Canadian Race Relations Foundation and the Ryerson Centre for Immigration and Settlement (RCIS).

The round-table will focus on the changing perceptions and experiences of "identity" and "belonging" amongst Canada's increasingly complex ethno-racial composition, and how these changes manifest from generation to generation. The panel will examine a range of factors, including socio-cultural and economic ones, that facilitate or hinder the smooth and effective integration of newcomers into the Canadian life at individual, group and institutional levels, and how these have evolved over time. The panel will also examine the rapidly transforming Canadian demographics (especially in metropolitan areas), identify the challenges and opportunities of these new realities, and discuss their implications for communities, policymakers and Canadian society at large.

Free admission. Refreshments provided. Q & A with the audience will follow the discussion. Please feel free to share this message with friends and any interested.
