CBC article highlights challenges for families facing deportation

A recent article posted on the CBC website focuses on the stresses experienced by families facing deportation and features input from JCACAP Editor-in-Chief Dr. John McLennan.

In this article, Dr. McLennan notes that “the prolonged period of deportation” is of particular concern, adding that for children and adolescents, “pulling apart your social network, when your family or school or community that you’re linked with are all being removed at the same time – this compounding level of stress is certainly concerning.”

For additional reading on this topic, JCACAP’s Advocacy Column in the May 2023 issue features a statement entitled “Stopping deportation of parents of Canadian children: the need to prioritize the best interests of the child.”
