From Our LIPs to Your Ears: The Local Immigration Partnership Podcast
Episode 1 - Resilience
Resilience is almost universally held to be positive quality of individuals, families, communities, and systems. Stories of newcomers overcoming the challenges of relocating and adjusting to life in a new country shape profoundly our conceptions of “success.” This episode asks whether stories of newcomer resilience can be recast as instances wherein the settlement system has fallen short of its stated objectives. Through that lens, we might began to see new opportunities to improve that system such that successful settlement in Canada need not require extraordinary resilience on the part of newcomers.
