Building a Newcomer-Centric Technology-Enabled Settlement Sector in Canada

I recently attended the 21st National Metropolis Conference in Halifax. I don’t get to these gatherings very often and they’re always a reminder of how much is happening in a very complex sector and how awesome and committed sector folks are. I presented a summary of some research work I’ve been doing for a client, and thought I’d share my presentation notes here.

Reflecting on my work and the work to come

The common thread in my work has become obvious. Working with immigrant and refugee-serving sector organizations. While some of my ideas and writing, and approaches, have tried to be broadly focused (like the Nonprofit Services Canvas), the reality is that I am working and implementing with immigrant and refugee-serving organizations. And that’s where this year is looking to focus as well.
