A guide for health professionals working with
immigrant and refugee children and youth

Peer Reviewers

This resource would not be possible without the efforts of peer reviewers.  

Since 2013, more than 70 health professionals across Canada have volunteered their time to read and provide feedback on website content. Many of these reviewers are members of the Canadian Paediatric Society’s committees and sections, and others are current or former members of the Board of Directors

The Editorial Board of Caring for Kids New to Canada extends its thanks to each peer reviewer.  Their contribution of time and expertise is a sign of their commitment to the well-being of children, youth and families new to Canada.
