Inform promising practices for refugee resettlement and integration.
Identify key factors that influence the success of different settlement strategies
Understanding how social integration influences mental and physical health.
Refugee Integration and Long-term Health Outcomes in Canada (SyRIA.lth) is a pan-Canadian longitudinal study funded by The Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR). The project is a partnership between settlement service agencies and academic research institutions in three of Canada’s largest refugee resettlement provinces: British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec.
We are looking at how different resettlement programs support the social integration of Government Assisted Refugees (GARs) and Privately Sponsored Refugees (PSRs) and the impact of integration pathways on their long-term physical and mental health. Our goal is to improve the health and well-being of new Canadians by understanding what leads to successful integration outcomes and for whom so that we can tailor resettlement programs to best suit newcomers’ needs and circumstances.
