Canadian Settlement in Action: History and Future

CC BY-NC-SA (Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike)  42 H5P Activities    English

Author(s): Alexandru Caldararu, Julie Clements, Rennais Gayle, Christina Hamer, Maria MacMinn Varvos, Lynn Sutankayo, Marcia Kim, Sarah Apedaile

Editor(s): Nicholle Carriere

Subject(s): Society and culture: general, Social discrimination and social justice, Racism and racial discrimination / Anti-racism, Migration, immigration and emigration, Ethnic groups and multicultural studies

The OER textbook is an introduction to key issues in the settlement sector rather than a comprehensive exploration of this dynamic and multifaceted field. Maria MacMinn Varvos situates the history of settlement services in Canada, including a look at delivery models and perspectives. She also explores the relationship between literacy levels of women and its affect on their settlement. Alexandru Caldararu introduces and situates social justice and anti-oppressive practice in settlement worker practice. He also presents a detailed discussion on climate migration and its implications on settlement, and a further discussion on the concept of mutual aid and its relevance for settlement work. Christina Hamer presents types of migration-related trauma and the mental health challenges many newcomers face before arriving in Canada. Rennais Gayle discusses the settlement experiences of older arriving immigrants, particularly focusing on family dynamics. In her chapter, Julie Clements provides an overview of how settlement workers can effectively navigate intercultural communication contexts. Lynn Sutankayo delves deeply into how related concepts in settlement act as a conduit towards further understanding of issues in gender, sexuality, and culture. Marcia Kim discusses various resources that could be accessed by newcomer families struggling with the transition to life in Canada in her chapter. And finally, Sarah Apedaile discusses relational approaches to intercultural dialogue and anti-oppressive practices when working with newcomer populations in her chapter. While the textbook chapters can be read in the order presented, each chapter presents a unique issue and can also be enjoyed in non-sequential order.
