Live From U of Ottawa: Refugees Welcome, But Bad News About the Job Market…
When Canadian University grads work at Starbucks and immigrant doctors drive taxis, how will refugees get on their feet?

The Liberals hit their target to bring 25,000 refugees to the country, so what happens now? Andray and Desmond host a live panel asking how cities are preparing these people to fend for themselves in a year’s time and how refugees can get on their feet in a terrible job market.

Featuring:

Michael Qaqish, an Ottawa city councillor and the city’s refugee liaison.

Ula Abu Rashed, a student at the University of Ottawa whose family left Syria for Germany last fall.

Rouba Al-Fattal, a part time professor of Middle East and Arab politics at the University of Ottawa, leading the #Canadians4Refugees campaign for the Rotary Club of Ottawa.
