The Mental Health of Refugee Children in Ontario
AbstractThe province of Ontario, Canada becomes home to a number of refugee children and their families each year.Â Some of these children will grow and flourish in their new home while others will face many challenges.Â Through a review of the literature, this paper will examine the pre- and post-migration stressors faced by refugee children and their families, and the factors that protect some children from being impacted by adverse circumstances. It will provide information on the success of refugee children in the school system.Â Finally, recommendations will be offered on how different levels of government can best support refugee children and their families.
