Review Settlement Checklist

Overview

Prior to the arrival of the refugee(s) the group or committee should take some time to review their Settlement Work Plan and make any changes that may be needed. This would also be a good time to identify or, if previously discussed, confirm what needs to be completed by whom and when.

The following Settlement Checklist has been developed to assist you and your team in preparing for those first critical hours, weeks and months both before and after the arrival of your newcomer(s).

The Settlement Checklist has been divided into the following sections. Similar to the Settlement Work Plan, the checklist can be modified to suit the unique needs of the family(s) you and your team are sponsoring.

Pre-Arrival
Arrival
First 24 Hours
First Weeks & Months
First Year & Beyond
