Webinar #2: Operation Ukrainian Safe Haven: Innovative Practices – Employment | Opération havre de paix pour les Ukrainiens : pratiques innovantes – Emploi

March 20, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Settling Newcomer Ukrainian Families – Innovative Practices Webinars

 

As part of the Government of Canada’s response to Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada introduced new immigration streams for Ukrainians who want to come to Canada temporarily or permanently.  

  

From January 18 to February 13, 2023, Operation Ukrainian Safe Haven administered a questionnaire nationally for submissions to understand the projects and initiatives that organizations and stakeholders undertook to welcome displaced Ukrainians to Canada and share their learnings and innovative practices. 69 organizations and stakeholders provided submissions highlighting their projects and initiatives nationally. The results of this consultation on innovative practices is accessible on the website of the operation at https://ukrainesafehaven.ca/innovative-practices. The projects requested focus on three theme areas:  

  • Housing  
  • Employment  
  • Local Immigration Partnerships (LIPs), Community Building & Smaller Centres  

 

We would like to invite you a series of webinars to hear from a select number of organizations who have participated in welcoming and settling newcomer Ukrainian Families nationally. Each webinar will focus on a theme area and organizations will share about their project, the outcomes and key learnings and we will have time for a Q&A session with our speakers.  

 

March 20, 2023 

11:00 am – 12:30 pm PST / 2:00 – 3:30 pm EST 

 

Speakers:

Établissement des familles ukrainiennes nouvellement arrivées — Webinaires sur les pratiques innovantes

 

Dans le cadre de la réponse du gouvernement du Canada à l’invasion à grande échelle de l’Ukraine par la Russie, Immigration, Réfugiés et Citoyenneté Canada a introduit de nouveaux volets d’immigration pour les Ukrainiens qui veulent venir au Canada de façon temporaire ou permanente.  

  

Du 18 janvier au 13 février 2023, l’Opération havre de paix pour les Ukrainiens a envoyé et géré un questionnaire à l’échelle nationale, afin de comprendre les projets et les initiatives que ces organisations et intervenants ont entrepris pour accueillir les Ukrainiens déplacés au Canada et de faire circuler les leçons apprises et pratiques innovantes. En tout, 69 organisations et intervenants ont fourni des soumissions faisant valoir leurs projets et leurs initiatives. Le résultat de cette consultation sur les pratiques innovantes est accessible en anglais sur le site web de l’opération à l’adresse : https://ukrainesafehaven.ca/innovative-practices, la version francaise sera mise à jour dans les jours qui viennent. Les projets demandés portent sur trois domaines thématiques :  

  • Le logement  
  • L’emploi
  • Les Partenariats locaux d’immigration (PLI), développement communautaire et petits centres.

 

Nous aimerions vous inviter à une série de webinaires pour écouter un nombre choisi d’organisations qui ont participé à l’accueil et à l’établissement de familles ukrainiennes nouvellement arrivées au niveau national. Chaque webinaire sera axé sur un thème particulier et les organisations parleront de leur projet, des résultats et des leçons importantes à retenir. Nous aurons du temps pour une période de questions avec nos intervenants.
