Panel Discussion: Canada’s Response to the Global Refugee Crisis: Taking Stock and Moving Forward

Panel Discussion
Canada’s Response to the
Global Refugee Crisis:
Taking Stock and Moving Forward

Thursday, December 3, 2015
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Innis Town Hall, 2 Sussex Avenue, Toronto
(Northwest corner of St. George Street and Sussex Avenue, just south of Bloor Street)

CERIS cordially invites you to a discussion of Canada’s refugee policy and practice in the context of mounting protection needs. In recent years, Canada has largely shirked its responsibility for international and domestic refugee protection, failing to live up to its postwar reputation as a humanitarian nation. The consequences are real in declining refugee admissions, an unwelcoming domestic environment, and unmet settlement needs. With representatives of research, policy, service, and advocacy communities, this panel discussion will bring these issues to the fore and explore possible courses of action for a new direction in Canadian refugee policy and practice.

Panelists:

Janet Dench, Canadian Council for Refugees
Petra Molnar, Faculty of Law, University of Toronto
Huda Bukhari, Arab Community Centre of Toronto
Mac Scott, No One Is Illegal

Moderator:

Debbie Douglas, Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants
