Working Group on Immigration and Settlement

This Working Group provides a forum to exchange information, network and develop policy positions on all issues related to the settlement and integration of refugees, immigrants and other migrants in Canada, including:
  • provision of settlement services;
  • broader social justice context related to newcomers in Canada, for example: systemic racism, racialization of poverty, employment and income security, housing and homelessness, health, mental health, family reunification, and equitable access to services and basic entitlements.
