Intentions : «The general objective of the study was to examine the creation of RCOs (refugee community organizations) within asylum-seeker populations (in Montréal, Canada) and resettled refugee populations (in Winnipeg, Canada) to understand the contribution of these organizations to the creation of social capital, their role in the integration process of refugees, and the overall policy context of Canada’s incorporation regime.» (p. 63)

«Both in Winnipeg and Montréal, the importance of the family unit was the impetus for creating RCOs. A number of challenges facing refugee families during the resettlement process were expressed by leaders of these communities; these included intergenerational disparities, youth delinquency, transmission of cultural heritage, racism, discrimination, lack of employment opportunities, nonrecognition of foreign credentials, adaptation to new gender roles, and the impact of migration stresses on family dynamics. […] In both cities, leaders pointed out how semblances of ‘family elders’ or ‘family councils’ were created to settle disputes within refugee families and among members. The creation of these councils points to important gaps in services for refugee and immigrant families.» (p. 67-68)
