Refugees – Have they been warmly welcomed?
February 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
It’s been just over a year now since Canada fulfilled its commitment to take in 25,000 refugees from Syria. More have been coming since thanks to generous Canadians who have put in the time, effort, and money for private sponsorships.
Now that they have been here a year, the federal support is running out. How are they doing? Are they struggling or flourishing? It isn’t enough that we simply bring people here, how have the support networks done to give these new Canadians the best chance for success? The biggest question for most of us is what we can do to help.
Join us on February 27th. Hannah Evans, the Director of the Syrian Refugee Resettlement Secretariat at the Ontario Public Service, and Noor Din, CEO of Human Endeavour, and Kelsey Lange, a lawyer at Lifeline Syria, will be leading the discussion on how best to help new Canadians and what we can do to help make our communities stronger.
