In this November 2021 Pathways to Prosperity Canada conference session presenters from the National Newcomer Navigation Network (N4) presented findings from their report seeking to better understand organizations' experiences as they supported newcomers navigating health and social services.
The dual pandemics of COVID-19 and the racial justice movement have highlighted the vulnerabilities of newcomers among health and social service organizations. Many organizations made commitments to improving Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), but struggled to actualize real change. From April 2020 to January 2021, National Newcomer Navigation Network (N4) engaged with over 40 organizations from across Canada to better understand their experiences as they supported newcomers navigating health and social services.
N4 presented brand-new key findings from this report, including challenges, barriers, successes, and innovations, and discussed how N4 is applying these findings to support professionals in advancing EDI across Canada.
