Combatting Racism and Discrimination in the Settlement Sector



The "Combatting Racism and Discrimination in the Settlement Sector" is a year-long project which aims to study the challenges faced by racialized newcomers when accessing settlement services and identify best practices to combat discrimination in Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia.

The project aims to examine the lived-experiences of newcomers and the barriers faced in the settlement process, while in parallel, speaking with key informants from the settlement sector to identify best practices adopted by the settlement sector.
