Finding Refuge in Canada

Narratives of Dislocation

Canada has often been regarded as a benevolent country, welcoming refugees from around the globe. However, refugees entering the country have encountered a spectrum of reactions. Collecting personal narratives from refugees, sponsors, activists, and civil servants, Finding Refuge in Canada offers critical perspectives on the social, political, and cultural challenges faced by refugees to Canada. The authors demonstrate how national attitudes toward globalism emerge from and shape the country’s experience with dislocated peoples. Humanizing this international crisis, these stories invite readers to imagine the possibilities of a more equitable future.
