Unaccompanied and Separated Children, Part Two
In partnership with Christie Refugee Welcome Centre and FCJ Refugee Centre, the Centre for Refugee Children is a new initiative providing direct settlement services and legal support for refugee and migrant children in Ontario.
In this two-part document, Centre for Refugee Children staff provides an overview of the current landscape for refugee and migrant children in Ontario, highlighting systemic barriers and settlement challenges that children—including unaccompanied and separated children (UASCs)—must navigate during their initial settlement.
Part One provides a brief overview of child migration and the current context for refugee and migrant children arriving in Canada. You can see it here.
Part Two (below) focuses on the legal and settlement needs of refugee and migrant children in Ontario, and discuss some available resources for UASCs and refugee children in the province.
