Abstract: Population displacements reveal the economic and political situations of our societies. Indeed, migration has always existed whether due to nomadism, rural exodus, economic migration or protection. However, migration questions social work professionals who work with immigrants of all statuses. Political and media discourse on migration also has its share of security issues. We are seeing an increase in border control measures and several amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act have a direct impact on the lives of migrants, particularly those seeking asylum. In this master’s thesis, we will explore the paths of asylum seekers in Quebec. The experience of being a refugee and seeking protection raises security and humanitarian issues, regardless of the country of departure or host country. Populations seeking protection, particularly asylum seekers, would thus be subject to structural difficulties. It is in this context that we question the conditions under which asylum seekers are received in Quebec. More specifically, the subject of this thesis concerns the empowerment of asylum seekers, i.e whether the support offered allows them to exercise their power of action under favourable conditions.
