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

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

Panellsts presenting during a workshop"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."

Participants brainstorming in a workshop"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."

Participants preparing to present ideas at a workshop"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.
