My study examines a sample of the ideas, plans, goals, procedures, and programs recommended in Canadian educational policies for Syrian refugee children and interrogates educational policies with a critical social work lens. My research's main focus is not educational analysis but rather a study of how social justice for Syrian children’s education can be realized. Multiculturalism, integration, inclusion, and critical theory are the concepts and theoretical approaches that guide my research. This study employs a critical policy analysis research design to reveal the complexity, subjectivity, and inherent in/equity in Ontario's educational policy. Ontario was chosen as the research location as it is the province with the highest Syrian refugee numbers, with almost 50% of them being children. My research findings show that Ontario’s educational policy for Syrian refugee children needs a more inclusive and social justice-oriented awareness, and Social Work Profession could play a critical role in achieving this.
