Thrive Conference is an extension of The Immigrant Life, the Canadian narrative started by Dapo Bankole on July 1st 2018 with the aim of inspiring fellow immigrants to discover actionable insights that will help them thrive and make a difference in their chosen spheres of influence. He did this by putting a spotlight on his integration experiences and that of other first-generation Canadians, mining their collective intelligence and presenting these in the form of podcasts. Over the years, the community has continued to grow and based on the identified gap in the Canadian immigrant landscape, the idea for an annual Thrive Conference was born.
Thrive Conference is the only time that first-generation Canadians and friends converge together under the same roof to learn, unlearn, and network from across Canada. Thrive Conference 2020 was the first in the series of these annual events. The conference brings together movers and shakers from around Canada and the world that are committed to supporting first-generation Canadian immigrants in their journey of integration.

We want to access reliable information that is relevant to our unique situation.
We want to unlearn any information that is not working for us or that is holding us back.
We want to walk away from the event with the start of a blueprint that we can consult in our pursuit of a colorful immigrant life.
We want to establish our unity, identity, voice, and influence as first-generation Canadian immigrants.
Whether you are single, married, separated or divorced, there is a hack.
Canada is not your typical place, there are deep insights that you need.
We all get tripped up by this all the time so we talk about it. Always.
We wish we were taught this in School. As immigrants, it even matters more.
Because most of us don't like to discuss this, we bring it up openly. Help is here.
Life is all about relationships and learning to build, nurture, sustain and end one is key.
Societal status and material acquisition are meaningless without sound health.
We were all once potential immigrants so we offer help to intending immigrants.
Make the most of the event because it happens just once a year! Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience." Thrive conference creates the perfect and safe environment for this.
