Syrian men’s experiences of integration and employment in Canada

This 12-minute video presents the experiences of three Syrian men, and their struggle for not having their professional degrees and work experience recognized in Canada.

In November 2023, the Government of BC introduced legislation to help reduce barriers across 29 professions and make it easier for professional newcomers to get their credentials and experience recognized, regardless of where people are trained.

The research team that worked on this video is formed by one of our partners, Dr. Nancy Clark, from the Social Justice Program of UVIc; Dr. Carla Hilario, UBC Okanagan, and Collaborative Community Partners Options Community Services Society. Peer researchers: Nedal Isdden, Hasan Moses, and Meer Mahomud.
