Canada’s Response to Refugee Crises: What have we learned?

Naomi Alboim, Distinguished Fellow, School of Policy Studies

Responding to a refugee crisis is never easy and each refugee movement comes with its own complexities and challenges. What have we learned from the way Canada has responded to the Indochinese, Syrian, Afghan and Ukrainian crises that could inform our responses going forward? What are some elements that are key  to success?

Naomi Alboim is a Senior Policy Fellow at the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration and Integration (CERC) at Toronto Metropolitan University, and a Distinguished Fellow at the School of Policy Studies at Queen’s University.

Previously, Naomi worked at senior levels in the Canadian federal and Ontario provincial governments for twenty-five years, including eight years as the Ontario Deputy Minister responsible for immigration, human rights, labour market training, as well as women’s, seniors’, disability, anti-racism and indigenous issues.

She has been involved in different capacities in the Indochinese, Syrian, Afghan and Ukrainian movements to Canada.

Naomi is a recipient of Queen Elizabeth II’s Gold and Diamond Jubilee  Medals and is a member of the Order of Ontario.
