We are proud  
Congratulations to Victoria Burns, CREGÉS member
Victoria Burns, a student in the McGill University/ Université de Montréal Joint PhD program in Social Work/Social Policy successfully defended her thesis on July 27. Completed in partnership with organizations fighting against homelessness in Montreal, and under the supervision of Dr. Tamara Sussman and Dr. Jean-Pierre Lavoie, her thesis, “Oscillating in and out of place across housed-homeless trajectories: experiences of newly homeless older adults in Montreal, Quebec” looks at the experiences of people who become homeless later on in life. Her project was funded by a SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier doctoral scholarship. This fall, she’ll be embarking on post-doctoral research under the supervision of Dr. Anne-Marie Séguin, at the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) – Urbanisation Culture Société Research Centre, with the project, “Finding home after homelessness: Newly homeless older adults’ experiences of exiting homelessness in Montréal, Québec.”
