Successful resettlement of all refugee groups is a matter of interest to both the host society and the newcomers. The current study was designed to explore the resettlement experience of African refugee mothers who are relocated to Canada/Calgary with children and without a spouse/partner. The design took a qualitative approach in which seven refugee single mothers from Africa participated in semi-structured interviews. The Critical Incident Technique (Flanagan 1954), supplemented by Thematic Analysis (Braun & Clarke, 2006), was used to conduct data analyses. Several categories (Support, Self Preservation, Adjustment to Canadian Ways, Awareness of Personal Limitations, Housing, Education, Finances, Parenting, Sexual Assault) and themes (Hopes and Dreams, Changes, Benefits, Psychological Distress, Looking to the Future, Advice for Those Considering Relocation) were formulated to describe the experience of making Canada home. The findings are discussed in relation to existing literature and implications for theory, research, and practice are presented.
