2016 Fresh Voices Forum

The 2016 Fresh Voices Forum is a unique opportunity for young people to speak directly to diverse stakeholders including government officials, service providers, community leaders and most importantly, other young people!

The goal of the forum is to bring newcomer young people, adults and decision-makers together in a respectful environment of listening and learning from each other. We want youth with diverse backgrounds and opinions, who want to make a difference in their communities, and who want to meet other youth and adults who share common interests and concerns.

Syrian Youth Refugee Consultation

"This was the first time in ISSofBC history that we brought together former refugee youth within their first year to Canada and asked them how their settlement experience has been going to date as well as gained their input into some newcomer youth related policy and program needs,” – ISSofBC Director of Settlement Services Chris Friesen.
