Talk to Action- Call for Organizations

This initiative is designed to foster dialogues among  newcomer and refugee youth (16 to 25 year-olds living in Canada for up to 10 years) to discuss strengths and barriers, as well as the systemic changes that need to take place in order to improve the lives of newcomer youth. Together, we draw from these talks to develop a youth-led national advocacy agenda with recommendations for how to address the needs of newcomer and refugee youth.

For more details and how to apply? 

 Fill out this application form by December 15 and if you have any questions you can email us at

Please note only the first 16 groups who meet the criteria will be selected to participate.


We are the youth division of the Canadian Council for Refugees.

The Youth Network gives refugee and newcomer youth a voice to address challenges faced by newcomer youth and a space to share ideas on how to meet these challenges.

The Youth Network works within a gender justice and anti-oppression framework.

The CCR Youth Network began in 2006 and has evolved through online discussions, teleconferences, the organization of youth-led workshops and strategy sessions and the development of youth-driven projects.

All of those actions were designed in order to give newcomer youth a voice and to address the many challenges that they face. Through our projects, we promote artistry, confidence, and self-expression amongst refugee and newcomer youth.
