Event description

Description

CERIS cordially invites you to a panel discussion on the state of services for immigrant women, youth, and seniors in Canada. While these groups are generally considered vulnerable to prolonged economic marginalization and social exclusion, the findings of a CERIS knowledge synthesis identify gaps in services and strategies to improve access to services. In this panel discussion, our researchers will share insights into research with immigrant women, youth, and seniors and invite discussants and participants to exchange ideas for policy and service innovation to better support the settlement of all immigrants.
