In 2020, CYRRC funded five research projects to look at the impacts of COVID-19, recognizing that refugee children, youth, and families may experience the COVID-19 pandemic in unique ways and that service provider organizations (SPOs) were encountering challenges and innovating solutions as they adapted service delivery models to clients’ needs during this health emergency.
