The federal government is interested in exploring ways to improve existing settlement and integration programs for refugees. As part of this goal, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) commissioned the Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC) to identify potential new program ideas that could help refugees achieve a successful integration into the Canadian labour market and that could be evaluated independently and rigorously via demonstration projects. CIC indicated their interest for one specific group of refugees — government-assisted refugees. In June 2001, SRDC submitted to CIC an options paper identifying four potential program ideas.
