This short documentary follows several refugee families during their first 19 days in Canada, as they navigate an unfamiliar terrain that has suddenly become their home. Located in the quiet Calgary neighbourhood of Bridgeland, the Margaret Chisholm Resettlement Centre is the starting point for government-assisted refugees who arrive in the city. During the 19-day timeline established by the federal government, an initial assessment is done and refugees are assisted with everything from airport reception and orientation to referrals, documents, and counselling.

19 Days reveals the human side of the refugee resettlement process. A unique look at the global migration crisis and one particular stage of asylum, it lays plain the realities faced on the difficult road towards integration.

    My hat's off to the folks who produced this heartwarming doc. I've worked in the newcomer settlement field for five decaces as an ESL professional. I am sharing the link to this doc with everyone I can as I think it should be required viewing for anyone who works with newcomers. Inspiring, illuminating, life affirming. Well done.
