International Students as Newcomers to Canada: Demographic Characteristics, Settlement Needs, and Transitioning

March 4, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

CERIS is presenting at the 18th Metropolis Conference:

Title of the presentation: International Students as Newcomers to Canada: Demographic Characteristics, Settlement Needs, and Transitioning

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.

Date: Friday, March 4, 2016
Time: 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Place: Pier 2
