The FCJ Refugee Centre has been partnering with the Pro Bono Students OSGOODE Chapter since 2011. Since September 2018, a group of students from the CARL U of T chapter joined our efforts to support us as well. For this coming year, in September 2020 the Pro Bono U of T Chapter will be part of our program.
The Uprooted Peoples Protection Program provides information for refugee claimants and non-status people, including conducting research on country conditions and other immigration and refugee issues, assistance with filling out legal forms, conducting in-person sessions for people looking for immigration information. Students focus their work in assisting clients to complete their Humanitarian and Compassionate Considerations applications for Permanent Residence. Another unique aspect of this program is the provision of information specifically to people who have had their refugee claim denied, but are unable to return to their country. This comprehensive team works to support them in any and all ways possible with their refugee appeal.
We know that the last couple of months have been anyhing but ordinary. But if there’s one thing we want you to know, it’s that we’re still here. Our door is still open. Home is still here. And you can count on us. We feel so privileged to have been able to move our weekly meetings to online formats, so that we can still see your beautiful faces every week! We’re loving watching movies together, and we’ll find new ways of safely being together in person as soon as we possibly can.
We’re coming in to the beautiful summer months, and we’re all enjoying the beautiful warm weather and sunny days. And even though our usual summer activities will have to be shuffled around a little bit, we’re going to make sure we have lots of fun, enjoy the sunshine, and spend as much of the beautiful summer months together as we can.
So that’s why we’re sending this to you. Something small to chronicle this time, and to share memories. And something you can have in your home to remind you that we’re here, waiting until we can sit around the kitchen table together again. Around that table, we are a community, and we are a family. Until then, wherever your kitchen tables are; spread out across Toronto and all borders; wherever you are, those kitchen tables belong to all of us.
During this webinar we will talk about the impact of the COVID 19 in young people. The FCJ youth network members will share their stories and also will talk about the initiatives/activities that they implemented during the last period.
Join us and find out how to get involve in more virtual events that will help you to survive the pandemic.
Webinar is scheduled on Thursday August 27 at 10:30 am
