June 1-3: Canadian Council for Refugees Spring Consultation
Information from the CCR website: CCR Consultations address issues affecting refugees and other vulnerable groups of migrants, and newcomer settlement. The 300 participants from across Canada include refugees, immigrants, representatives of NGOs, government, UNHCR, academics, community workers, youth advocates and international guests.
People who work with newcomers and those with a personal interest in refugees and immigrants are warmly invited, especially youth.
The consultation is an excellent opportunity to:
- Meet, learn from and network with experts in the field
- Gain professional training and strategize on a wide range of topics
- Exchange information and prepare resolutions and action plans on a broad range of refugee and newcomer issues
- Contribute to the CCR working groups' ongoing dialogue on policy and legislation
CCR consultations are designed to move from issues to action. The Working Group meetings frame the discussions, introducing the issues at the beginning, and then, after the workshops, strategizing on next steps. At the Concluding Plenary, we adopt any new policy positions through resolutions and review key action items.
When: Thursday - Saturday, June 1-3, 2017
Where: MacEwan University, City Centre campus, 10700 104 Ave NW, Edmonton
