This workshop will examine the selection, reception and settlement experiences of refugees and immigrants with disabilities. The workshop will 1) Present first-person accounts of settling in Canada with a disability; 2) present examples of supports available and share examples of success stories; 3) address the issue of inclusion/exclusion based on medical needs or perceived disabilities and 4) offer the opportunity to explore and share resources for supporting persons with disabilities. We encourage participants to bring examples and/or displays from their own communities.
