Presenters from Settlement Orientation Services an provided an overview of the claim process and timeline of activities for claimants, went into great detail about what services and programs refugee claimants are/are not eligible for during the claim process, eligibility and application processes. In addition, presenters from the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction reviewed social assistance for refugee claimants, the application process, eligibility and answered many questions about social assistance for claimants.
This webinar topic has been informed by a feedback survey conducted with the settlement and integration sector by the BC Refugee Hub. This webinar is suitable for those working in front-line positions, coordinators and managers at settlement service provider agencies, as well as community stakeholders who work with and support refugees and refugee claimants from the time they come to BC, during their claim process, when a claim decision is received and who are/become permanent residents (PRs).
