Public Engagement in Experiential Futures

Newcomer well-being

Stress from unstable, and often unfulfilling precarious work takes its toll on newcomers who are not only adjusting to a new environment, but must regularly compete for job opportunities to provide for themselves and their families. Discrimination arising from disdain over Canada’s openness to accept refugees also ironically make the settlement experience difficult. Mental health of newcomers are immensely affected, and the Government’s automated social service system does not account for such qualitative subtleties.
