The last consultation of the Pluralism Project’s cross-country tour, led by 2015 Trudeau Fellow Bessma Momani of the University of Waterloo and 2015 Trudeau Mentor Jillian Stirk of Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Dialogue, took place on 14 December, in Montréal. About forty business people focused on diversity and inclusion issues in the workplace, to find solutions to accelerate the vocational integration of newcomers. They talked about the economic and operational contributions of diversity to the workplace, good management practices of diversity, foreign business opportunities, and how to attract and retain highly qualified workers.

The findings and recommendations of this study will be presented at the beginning of 2017.

This project is one of several that the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation is supporting in the area of diversity, pluralism, and the future of citizenship.
