Refugee Settlement Support Project

Through research, outreach, resource development and training, the Refugee Settlement Support Project aims to identify and address challenges faced by frontline settlement staff related to a high number of (Syrian) refugees arriving in a short timeframe in Ontario.

Funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and carried out by OCASI, the first phase of the project looked at service providers' challenges and opportunities in assisting resettled refugees in Ontario. Based on the findings and recommendations submitted to IRCC, the second phase features a professional development webinar series.
