Talk About 2017 Forum Report - Final

Toronto is the prime destination for newcomers in Canada and more Syrian newcomers settled in Toronto during the Syrian refugees’ resettlement initiative. Many of the agencies from different sectors have adopted specific strategies and approaches to better serve their newcomer clients. A majority of mentioned strategies and approaches are successful but remain within the usage domain of mentioned agencies.  

The Health & Well-being group of Toronto North Local Immigration Partnership (TNLIP) decided to facilitate a discussion among managers and frontline workers of agencies from different sectors serving newcomers to document mentioned approaches, promising practices, and lessons learned. A planning committee was formed and the members included Toronto North Local Immigration Partnership, Social Planning Toronto (SPT), Working Women Community Centre (WWCC), Toronto Public Health (TPH) and For You Telecare Family Services (FUTFS). 

This documemt reports the presentations and discussions at the Talk About Forum held on March 22, 2017.
