Each year, the CYRRC produces an Annual Highlights Report to showcase our work. In these reports, you will find an overview of our management structure and membership as well as descriptions of all projects carried out by CYRRC members that year.
Also on this page are a number other reports produced by us. These reports are cross-cutting and pertain to issues that are Coalition-wide as opposed to project specific.
2017 Highlight Report
An overview of our operations and projects from the 2017 funding cycle.
This study will identify the top five most pressing research and policy needs the CYRRC should focus on and fund. Using a method called the Delphi technique, specifically designed to make research and policy projections, a group of experts replies to rounds of questions based on feedback derived from previous rounds until a consensus is achieved.
In the first round, CYRRC members identified a range of research and policy priorities. These have been grouped into nine themes under research needs—Integration, Wellbeing, Education, Language, Economy, Family, Services, Identity Formation, and General. Under policy needs, eight themes emerged—Community Integration, Services, Family, Economy-Employment, Language, Education, Research, and General Policy. Starting research projects immediately on a variety of topics about refugee children and youth arose as the key policy priority. The second priority was studying refugee children and youth comparatively with children and youth of other migration streams, native-born Canadians, and across various refugee cohorts. The top priorities in each section are subject to change at the end of the second round, and again later as the experts converge on a consensus.
