Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I know that as of today, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees website reports that there are 4,844,762 registered Syrian refugees and over a quarter of those are children under the age of 18.
You talked about some of the challenges that are faced by young people, and I want to hone in on a specific multi-layered issue. They are struggling to get settled, and in general to access health services, including mental health services, but on top of that, the issues they faced in the regions they came from are very dire. These children, millions of them, have been forced out of school. They have a higher risk of being exploited or abused. Some of them, as we have heard from witnesses today, are victims of sexual slavery.
Do you know of any services or programs being run in Canada now that are able to specifically address that multi-layered challenge, in terms of these children coming from war and conflict and the types of mental health services they might need arising from their lived experiences?
