About Us

The Refugee Hub was founded at the University of Ottawa in 2012. Our mission is to foster justice and human rights for refugees at local, national, and international levels through innovative research, programs and partnerships. We are supported in our work by a team of in-house experts, a wide range of consultants, and a broad and diverse community of partners and stakeholders.

The Refugee Hub is a partner in the Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative (GRSI), a unique and ambitious multi-stakeholder collaboration that encourages and supports the creation of new community sponsorship programs around the world with the aim of increasing and improving overall refugee resettlement, strengthening local host communities, and improving the narrative surrounding newcomers. Other partners in the GRSI include the Government of Canada, the UNHCR, Open Society Foundations, The Giustra Foundation, and The Shapiro Foundation.

The Refugee Hub is also the Canadian partner in the Sustainable Practices of Integration (SPRING) consortium funded by the EU’s H2020 programme and led by Fondazione Inizative e Studi sulla Multietnicità (ISMU), and is the lead partner in the Research Colloquium on Refugee Sponsorship, in collaboration with the Centre for Refugee Studies at York University and the Institute for Research into Superdiversity at the University of Birmingham.
