Join our webinar to discuss of the ground-breaking, multi-year report, Sustaining Welcome.
The report brought together researchers and front-line workers to understand the early refugee settlement experiences of resettled Syrian refugees as they integrated into Canadian society.
Innovative in its approach, the authors contributed expertise from a range of disciplines, including psychology, social science, geography and epidemiology.
From 2017 to 2020, the authors interviewed 1,665 resettled Syrian former refugees across Canada each year, including 267 participants in BC who participated in all four years of the research. This longitudinal research allowed the authors to track changes among former Syrian refugees at the group and individual level over an extended period, revealing key group dynamics that would otherwise be missed in shorter studies.
Join the webinar on Wednesday November 15th (11.00am-12.30pm PST) that will feature a discussion of the report’s findings and recommendations with the lead authors from the report, including Michaela Hynie, Yolanda Weima and Jennifer Hyndman.
Kathy Sherrell, Director of Settlement Services at ISSofBC, will chair the event.
