Refugee Resettlement & Integration in Canada Series

Between October 2020 and February 2021, the Ryerson Centre for Immigration and Settlement (RCIS) hosted a six-part digital series focused on Canada’s approach to refugee resettlement and integration. The series was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and aimed to engage stakeholders to consider Canada’s approach to refugee resettlement and identify changes to policy and practice that will make Canada more inclusive and responsive to refugees’ needs. Over the course of the six sessions, refugees, settlement workers and service providers, researchers, and students were brought together to share insights and lessons learned from lived experience, settlement practice, and research.
