Successful Economic Integration of Refugees to Canada
Dr. Lori Wilkinson
Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Manitoba
What are the determining factors for the successful economic integration of refugees in Canada? What new challenges have emerged and what policies and programs should Canada pursue to address the challenge of more than 60 million internally displaced and refugees around the world?
Dr. Wilkinson will share her research and consider current trends in the successful economic integration of refugees in Canada, with a particular focus on the long-term labour market trajectories of those arriving to Canada as children or teens.
The Brown Bag Lecture Series is held on designated Fridays during the regular sessions from 12:00 pm — 12:55 pm in the Mauro Centre Boardroom, 252 St. Paul's College.
The lectures are free and open to the public. Lectures are approximately 30 minutes in length, followed by a discussion period. Don't forget to bring your bagged lunch!
