- July 18, 2012, join OASI for the release of the long-anticipated final report of the Making Ontario Home (MOH) study OCASI will hold a media launch in the morning and a panel discussion in the afternoon. The panel discussion will feature presentation of the findings and explore their implications for the immigrant and refugee-serving sector. This event will be held at Ryerson University and is open to all. Making Ontario Home: The MOH study includes a survey of over 2,500newcomers to Ontario, and is the first province-wide study of its kind in Ontario focused on immigrant and refugee use of settlement and integration services.  Its purpose is to develop a deeper understanding of which immigrant and refugee needs are being met and how; which groups are well served and why; why do some newcomers not use settlement services; and how the settlement needs of immigrants and refugees across the province may best be served. It is the most comprehensive description to date of those who use settlement and integration services. For any questions about MOH, please contact Erika Gates-Gasse at egates@ocasi.org
