Here's what some past participants have liked about CCR Consultations:

"My clients face these issues and it’s important for me to hear from other workers about possible solutions."

"It takes extra effort to keep updated when you do it on your own so being a part of the CCR and the energy of people who care was absolutely wonderful, refreshing, and a good reminder of what matters."

"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."

"It was nice hearing questions, comments and concerns addressed by both people who work in the refugee sector and from refugees themselves."

"I appreciated the open environment and the speakers' abilities to navigate a conversation so that everyone felt heard."
