Moderator Peggy Schultz stepped the Core Services team through a process called After Action Review (AAR). The AAR was an interactive process, designed to allow the collective teams to take stock, exchange insights and identify the areas that are working as well as those areas which did not work from the perspective of everyone involved.

The outcome of the AAR process will inform the Toronto Lead Agency Work Plan for Year 2. Peggy’s final report will be shared with Core Services Agencies.

Lead Agency Project Manager Janice Wiggins, provided an update on the work being done by the infant, child and youth mental health community to support Syrian newcomers.
