Join us Next Thursday as we Publish new research and celebrate newcomers on World Refugee Day.

We’re Inviting our members to join us in celebrating World Refugee Day at City hall next Thursday, June 20, 2019.

At the event, ECVO will be publicly releasing Lessons from the Influx, our report on Edmonton’s response to the Syrian refugee Influx based on research conducted over the past two years. we’re excited to be able to finally share the report and its findings, from the stories of resilience along refugees’ journeys and the hardships faced by Edmonton’s settlement organizations, to the many amazing acts of community from everyday Edmontonian who supported thousands of refugees to settle into our city.

Each year, the UNHCR’s World Refugee Day is an opportunity to stop and remember the plight of the refugee in our world, and also to celebrate their lives and contributions in the new homes in which they’ve laid down roots. Here in Edmonton, World Refugee Day is set to include many refugee stories, music and dance from around the world, and a lineup of speakers sharing recent work in refugee settlement in Edmonton.

We will be on hand to speak to the lessons from the influx report, both regarding its creation and also its recommendations to improve the settlement process for all refugees.

Date: Thursday, June 20, 2019

Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Location: Edmonton City Hall (1 Sir Winston Churchill Square)
