Subject Areas: Immigrants And Refugees, Settlement

The arrival of Syrian refugees in Canada is a rare event, full of challenges for both the refugees themselves and for all Canadians. Governments and communities will need access to the latest knowledge to develop best practices in supporting and resettling refugees. With this in mind, this special call seeks to support research and mobilize knowledge in a timely way on key issues and events?such as education, employment, skills development, social integration and security?in the early days of the migration and resettlement process. In partnership with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), SSHRC will offer support to peer-reviewed research on Syrian refugee resettlement in Canada, by providing supplementary grants to SSHRC-funded researchers already studying immigration, refugee resettlement, early integration and related topics. This joint initiative aims to support targeted, practical and actionable research projects capable of delivering initial findings within six months to one year. SSHRC encourages researchers undertaking longer-term projects on subject matter related to this call to consider whether other SSHRC funding opportunities are better suited to their research.

Grant proposals may involve any disciplines and approaches or subject areas eligible for SSHRC funding. Please see Subject Matter Eligibility on the SSHRC Website for more information.
