Myriam Ouellet, a doctoral candidate at York University in Toronto, is a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) scholarship recipient. Her thesis studies the migration paths of Syrian refugees who have been resettled in Quebec City, looking at whether or not their social status has had an impact on their journey. Since 2016, she has worked on various research projects under the supervision of Dr. Danièle Bélanger, Professor at the Université Laval Department of Geography, and Dr. Charles Fleury, Professor at the Université Laval Department of Sociology. These projects have focussed on temporary and circular migrations, status transitions and status precarity in Canada. This young researcher also takes interest in forced migration movements in the Middle East and the resulting solidarity dynamics observed within the first host countries.
