Webinar: Insights on Housing Trajectories for Newcomers and Refugees
October 11, 2016
The Syrian refugee crisis has shed light on the many gaps in the Canadian affordable housing system, as well as to the limited housing trajectories for newcomers. This webinar will explore key settlement, integration, housing and relocation challenges being undertaken in Winnipeg and Montreal to address the necessity of providing safe, adequate housing for newcomers.
You will learn about the Montreal component of a pan-Canadian survey on housing refugees by the National Metropolis Project/Homelessness Partnership Strategy (2010-11). The University of Winnipeg and Welcome Place will also share a three-year research project undertaken on housing trajectories for newcomers and Syrian refugees.
