This study examines the challenges discussed by five different types of immigrant youth (aged 16 to 29) from ten different sending countries and regions, now residing in Toronto, Hamilton, and Ottawa, who are at some risk of not succeeding in their settlement and integration. It includes an analysis of the observations made by those who work in serving them in these cities, and answers the following question:

• What do existing research and information have to tell us about newcomer youth at risk?

• How are they coping in meeting the challenges they encounter?

• What resources exist for them, to help them meet their settlement needs?

• What gaps in information could be remedied for them to link them with existing resources?

• What else is needed to help them overcome the challenges they face?

The report concludes with recommendations, principally to the federal government, as to ways to assist the youth in achieving success in Canada.
