On June 16, the ICPC are pleased to have participated virtually in a clinical-scientific activity on the sexual exploitation of minors, organised by the Institut universitaire Jeunes en difficulté du CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal. The conference was an opportunity to discuss promising and effective practices in this area as well as the financial costs of sexual exploitation. A review of the SPHÈRES project team’s 5-year experience as a model for integrated and concerted action was presented during the webcast. Finally, future perspectives on sexual exploitation intervention were discussed.

The ICPC are pleased to have attended the Technical Experts Group meeting organised by the Federal Ministry for Housing, Urban Development and Building (Bundesministerium fur Wohnen, Stadtentwicklung und Bauwesen, BMWSB) which reiterates its commitment to highlight and make sustainable urban development a key theme of the upcoming G7 Summit, which will take place at the end of June in Bern, under the German Presidency.
Under the theme “Urban Development Track”, this meeting brought together international agencies and NPOs to develop a common position on inclusive and sustainable urban development, to develop cooperation in this field and to highlight the importance of the role of cities in achieving the global sustainable development goals.
We would like to thank the German Federal Ministry of Housing, Urban Development and Building for the invitation.
On March 17 and 18, the ICPC had the pleasure of attending the forum on Racism, Antiracism and Indigenous Issues, organized by the Institut de Recherche sur l’Intégration Professionnelle des Immigrants (IRIPI). This forum aimed to advocate collective mobilization by addressing manifestations of racism. It also aimed to shed light on the progress and blind spots that persist in many areas.
Several presentations were made, providing information on Aboriginal issues in various settings: schools, CEGEPs, universities and workplace. Good practices as well as guides for intervention and research in Aboriginal environments were also shared.
Thank you for the invitation.
