This event and day of reflection marks Refugee Rights Day in Canada (April 4th) and a reception to recognize the efforts of York-based refugee sponsors and mark the formal conclusion of York’s Syria Response and Refugee Initiative (SRRI), a Syrian refugee resettlement and education project (2015-2019) hosted at its Centre for Refugee Studies.

Speakers will discuss the origins and contemporary relevance of Refugee Rights Day, refugee policy in Canada and reflect upon their York-based engagement in refugee issues.

This event will also mark the formal launch of a mixed media exhibition “The Road Less Travelled,”  by Professor Nergis Canefe of York University’s Centre for Refugee Studies and Department of Politics, which will be displayed in the McLaughlin College Art Gallery (001 McLaughlin College) throughout the month of April.
