CERIS is presenting at the 18th Metropolis Conference:
Amidst the current emphasis on international students as a source of income and human capital for Canada, we often lose sight of the challenges they face as newcomers. Focusing on Ontario, this workshop will highlight the settlement need-service profile, as well as the demographic characteristics and post-graduation trajectories, of this population.
