This Expert Forum is organized by the PROTECT project's Canadian partner, Ryerson University. The webinar will explore the status of refugee rights and protection in Canada in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the objectives outlined in two UN Compacts on Refugees and Migrants, and in the 1951 Convention.
By providing views from different institutions and organizations involved in refugee protection in Canada, the webinar will consider challenges faced by refugees in specific contexts, such as employment, healthcare, and detention.
The Expert Forum takes place online on 20 November from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm, EDT. Speakers include Anthony Navaneelan from Legal Aid Ontario, Mac Scott from No One is Illegal, Mary-Jo Leddy from Romero House and Rana Khan from UNHCR.
