Jan 06, 2017

From 2013 - 2015, CCBR led a national study entitled The Role of Churches in Immigrant Settlement and Integration, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada. This month, an article was published by project partners including Sam Reimer (Crandall University), Mark Chapman (Tyndale University College & Seminary), Rich Janzen (CCBR), James Watson (The Salvation Army), and Michael Wilkinson (Trinity Western University). The article, entitled Christian churches and immigrant support in Canada: An organizational ecology perspective, explores how churches service the needs of immigrants by adapting to specific niche needs and by filling in gaps left by other service providers.  The article can be found here (full reference below).
