About immigrantchildren.ca

This blog was first set up in the fall of 2007 as a volunteer contribution to the now defunct Canadian Coalition for Immigrant Children and Youth (CCICY).  As of November 3, 2008, the blog is a solo passion and not affiliated in any way with the CCICY. I do not receive funding Рand never have Рfrom the CCICY or any other source.
If I was launching the blog today, I’d call it something else to be more inclusive. migrantchildren.ca? migrantandrefugeechildren.ca? cdnimmcdnrfgchildren.ca?
I am solely accountable for posts and links. I post on news, current issues, new initiatives, conference announcements, recent research and reports that may be of interest to others who are studying, working with or researching immigrant children/family issues. Posts do not necessarily reflect personal endorsement.
