Talking Point with Darrell Pinto: Piercing the veil of the refugee experience

June 20, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Talking Point with Darrell Pinto

This World Refugee Day (June 20), New Canadians welcomes you to join us live virtually for a conversation that will shed light on the refugee experiences in Canada and ways to make it better.

Our country has welcomed one million refugees since 1980. Although Canada has allowed these arrivals to “breathe” relative to the circumstances they were fleeing, they faced and continue to face different obstacles here – some subtle and some not so subtle. Let’s get together for a panel discussion to help pierce the veil of the refugee experience.


  • Jim Estill, CEO of Danby Appliances
  • Maysam Fadel, Manager, Volunteer & Student Services, Woodgreen Community Services (former refugee)
  • Laya Mosto, Client Relations Lead, Jumpstart Refugee Talent (former refugee)

Host: Darrell Pinto

Note: You can ask questions to our guest speaker(s) live during the webinar. Or, send your queries to us beforehand at contact@newcanadians.tv with a reference to the topic in the subject line of your email.
