Gateways to hope, pathways to belonging
29 - 31 May 2014, Halifax
Saint Mary's University, 923 Robie Street
For newcomers arriving in Canada at a place like Halifax’s Pier 21 is not an end, but the beginning of a journey. Many people seeking protection in Canada arrive with little more than hope and become well-established and valuable contributors to our communities along the way.
Join us at the CCR Spring Consultation to explore questions affecting refugee protection and newcomer settlement, so that we can build stronger and more welcoming communities together.
Register before 9 May to take advantage of reduced fees!

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