Who We Are

About the CYRRC

The Child and Youth Refugee Research Coalition (CYRRC) brings together academics, community partners, and government agencies to conduct research and mobilize knowledge that promotes the social integration, education, and mental and physical wellbeing of refugee children and youth in Canada. Our membership has grown to include over 180 members, and we continue to provide many training opportunities for students and youth with refugee experience. We also continue to support research and events that give youth with refugee experience a platform to amplify their voices.

Our research is organized into the following clusters:

  • Socio-economic
  • Language & Learning
  • Integration
  • Well-being
  • CYRRC-LERN (Canada- Germany)
  • Arts-Based Research

Funding Opportunities

We offer funding to support research on refugee children, youth and families across Canada, through regular calls for proposals which are announced several times a year. For more information about project funding, please visit the Project Funding tab.
