Research focus on refugee housing: Co-investigator Needed

Housing stability is an important contributor to health and wellbeing for all. However, establishing safe, secure, and affordable housing has proven to be more difficult for particular populations, including refugees to Canada (Murdie, 2008).

London’s Community Health Collaborative, lead by LHSC’s Dr. Matthew Meyer, is advancing a study to evaluate the impact of tenant and landlord education on health, housing stability, and social inclusion for Syrian refugees in an urban area in Canada.

Using a quasi-experimental design and mixed-methods, this study will assess the collective impact of  three landlord and tenant education initiatives on the self-rated health, housing stability, and social inclusion of government-assisted Syrian refugees settled in the city of London.

If you are researcher with an interest in housing issues, as well as health equity/social inclusion, please contact Matthew.Meyer@lhsc.on.ca for more information, or email us at info@crhesi.ca.
