The scale of this resettlement effort is significantly larger than any managed previously, said Scott Wolfe, executive director of the Canadian Association of Community Health Centres. “For example, the Ottawa Newcomer Clinic operated by Somerset West Community Health Centre typically receives about 30 to 40 government-assisted refugees monthly — about 400 to 500 annually — and that number keeps them quite busy. But, recently, they’ve just received about 200 newcomers in a matter of two weeks!” Wolfe explained in January.
