Year 2:

  • During the second year of data collection (spring-summer 2018), SyRIA.lth research team followed-up with 1809 of our year 1 participants nationally across Canada.

Because of your ongoing support and commitment to SyRIA.lth research study, we now have a rich and valuable information to help better understand  how social integration of refugees in Canada influences mental and physical health.

What’s next for SyRIA.lth research study?

  • Our year 3 follow-up survey will be available to eligible participants in spring 2019; stay tuned!
