The Coalition of Service Providers is always discussing problems and barriers that newly arrive refugee claimants face in their refugee process. One of those obstacles is the lack of preparation for their refugee hearing.
After a series of meetings, conversations and a lot of work that started at the beginning of 2014; one of the dreams of the Coalition of Service Providers become true: the READY Tour is up and running.
READY Tour now is hosted by the Coalition of Service Providers for Refugee Claimants in Southern Ontario and the Canadian Red Cross First Contact program in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the Refugee Protection Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada.
The implementation of the Ready Tour Program is possible thanks to the support of The Law Foundation of Ontario.
