A paper of the CERC in Migration & Integration recommends strategies for implementing the new Afghan resettlement programs and strengthening the impact of the Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot. It suggests ways to keep refugee families together and to open up refugee pathways through educational opportunities.
The recommendations build on the concept of complementary pathways for refugees, as embodied in section 3.3 of the Global Compact on Refugees which encourages member states to employ a range of pathways, over and above traditional government resettlement. As a member state with multiple pathways already in place, Canada is a leader in this regard, but more could be done to make the most of each pathway.
