CERIC funds study to better meet school and career needs of refugee youth

Having lived through the trauma of war, family separation and loss, thousands of refugeee children arrive in Canada each year and struggle to fit into classrooms. Led by the University of Winnipeg’s Jan Stewart, a new study will aim to help these refugee youth navigate school and find meaningful careers. The study is funded by CERIC and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

However, newly released breakdowns of CERIC’s National Business Survey by location – Rural setting, Outside Major Cities and Major Cities – likewise show that perspectives on career development are also shaped by urban vs. more remote setting.
