More people are on the move than ever before. With the growing amounts of migration, there are differing opinions on whether Canada is doing too much or too little with regard to refugee resettlement. Our panel of experts will focus on current debates, issues and research on the topic. They will discuss several aspects, including our duty to protect others, the true economic costs of resettlement and misconceptions that shape false attitudes and beliefs, while providing insight from professional fields to improve public knowledge.
