Here's what some past participants have liked about CCR Consultations:
"A lot of the consultation was useful to me and my work. I feel that I will be able to bring a lot of what I learned back to my team."
"I appreciated the open environment and the speakers' abilities to navigate a conversation so that everyone felt heard."
About the CCR Consultation
The Consultation will bring together over 300 people from across Canada and beyond and offer key opportunities for information exchange, networking, and strategy development. Participants include refugees, immigrants, representatives of NGOs, government, UNHCR, academics, community workers, youth advocates and international guests.
CCR consultations are designed to move from issues to action. Discussions will address issues that challenge refugees, immigrants, advocates and community workers. In addition to larger plenary sessions, workshops and working sessions will produce strategies for further collaboration, specific actions and policy recommendations.
