Event tonight at the library! Exploring REALITIES OF REFUGE on International Human Rights Day
We hope you will join us at our special event taking place this Thursday – International Human Rights Day – at the Halifax Central Library (Paul O’Regan Hall) beginning at 6 pm.
In collaboration with the Nova Scotia Citizens’ Healthcare Network (with generous sponsorship from the law firm Wickwire Holm), we will be screening the Karen Cho documentary “Seeking Refuge”. The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring special guest Peter Showler, former chair of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, along with some clients of the Halifax Refugee Clinic.
At a time of increased worldwide awareness and national attention to issues surrounding forced migration, this event will be a great opportunity to dissect and dispel some myths about refugees and refugee claimants. Our panel will present valuable first-voice perspectives on the experience of navigating the complex and challenging refugee determination procedure in Canada.
