Canadian Council for Refugees Fall Consultation
26 - 28 November 2018, Montreal

40 Years of Compassion, Courage and Resilience

Since 1978 the CCR has connected people and organizations across Canada to support them as they work passionately and tirelessly to protect refugees and make Canada a welcoming home for newcomers. Our 40th anniversary provides us with an opportunity to showcase our accomplishments and to recognize contributions – large or small, yet all significant – to our successes.

Join more than 300 others in Montreal to explore current issues affecting refugee protection and newcomer settlement at our Fall Consultation. All are welcome to participate!

With views from all Canadian provinces and with experts in diverse fields, the Consultation offers opportunities for professional development, networking and strategy.

Why participate?

"I loved the opportunity to share, but also to see the many people involved in the field! It’s energizing and motivational! "

"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."
