«Refugee claimants encounter significant barriers to resettlement. [This study] brings to light a hitherto understated challenge unique to families with children: a lacuna of affordable and accessible child care. This restricts the ability of parents, mostly mothers, to find work, attend school and learn French, and can result in social isolation. While a lack of formal child care primarily affects families with young children, a common thread among the majority of families in this study was an overall lack of help with child care because of reduced social networks. This current situation is unlikely unique to refugee claimant families in Montreal and allows for several recommendations to be made. The provision of child care services for refugee claimant families facilitates access to work and study opportunities for parents, and language acquisition and social integration for parents and children. Social workers, community organizations and policy-makers dealing with refugee claimants should design services that automatically consider their child care needs, particularly when parents or children have additional health or educational needs.» (p. 325)
