There are numerous organizations and community initiatives promoting the social and economic integration, education, and well-being of child refugees and their families in Canada. The CYRRC showcases one of these initiatives monthly to inspire networking and dialogue among academics, policy makers, non-governmental organizations and communities across the country.
