Welcome Refugees? Exploring Resettlement Conditions for Recently Arrived Refugees in Canada

Recently arrived refugee newcomers are in the process of creating their new home in Canada. They need to actively rebuild friendships, livelihoods, identities, and hopes for the future. Not surprisingly, the process takes time, and is supported but also hindered by Canada's settlement policies. Using data from several studies with recently arrived refugee newcomers, including a national longitudinal study of Syrian refugees, this talk reflects on some of the most important determinants of refugees' health and well-being and how well we are doing in supporting refugee newcomers' efforts to achieve their goals and aspirations.
