Child and Youth Refugee Research Coalition (CYRRC)

The Child and Youth Refugee Research Coalition (CYRRC) is an alliance of scholars, community partners and government agencies committed to promoting the successful integration of refugee children, youth and their families.  While the Coalition was formed to contribute meaningfully to policies and interventions to facilitate the integration of recently arrived Syrian refugees to Canada, it has a much larger goal of helping all young refugees succeed, both in Canada and around the world. To do this, the Coalition is committed to conducting rigorous research, promoting best practices and engaging in knowledge mobilization activities to further the social integration, education, mental wellbeing, and physical wellbeing of refugee children and youth.
