To support research on disparities in newcomer settlement and integration this project aims to reimagine and co-create settlement services for newcomers that are free from oppression and all forms of discrimination and inequity against them.
The research will examine how racism and discrimination affect newcomers’ access to and experiences with settlement services. Knowledge will be built from research about the lived experience of newcomers as well as information from immigrant serving organizations and the literature. Ultimately, co-design sessions will be held to identify essential, meaningful, and achievable changes to settlement services consistent with anti-racism goals.
This project will generate insights, identify best practices and recommendations, and encourage positive changes for more equitable policy and programming contributing to improvements in newcomer integration experiences and outcomes in Canadian society.
