Refugee Settlement Support Project

Through research, outreach, resource development and training, the Refugee Settlement Support Project aims to address gaps and challenges faced by service providers and refugee sponsors in relation to working together to better meet the needs of sponsored refugees.

Funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and carried out by OCASI - Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants, the first phase of the project identified challenges and opportunities related to the resettlement of Syrian refugees to Ontario.

Based on findings and recommendations from focus groups, interviews and surveys with service providers, OCASI set out to address some of the identified gaps by developing a resource library for service providers, organizing webinars and holding roundtable discussions on collaborating with service providers and refugee sponsorship groups across Ontario.
