Refugee claims based on sexual orientation and gender identity are the most complex and difficult cases that the Immigration and Refugees Board (IRB) gets. The Centre for Refugee Studies is organizing a seminar to discuss the common pitfalls that the IRB makes to assess these claims.
Rainbow Railroad is looking for volunteers to support LGBTQI+ refugees during their first year in Canada.
Rainbow Railroad matches each refugee with a group of volunteers (settlement team) that assist them in their daily errands and help them raise fund during their first in the Great North.
During that information session, prospective volunteers will be able to connect with experienced settlement team members and the Refugee Rainbow Railroad team.
