"A National Project gives equal weight to the experiences of the refugees and the experiences of the receiving communities, sponsors, and institutions, setting it apart from previous studies of Canada resettlement operations. This timely book breaks new ground by involving scholars from coast to coast in an effort to understand and extract the lessons from the Syrian program." Michael J. Molloy, University of Ottawa
