Tell Your MP to Support Stronger Refugee Resettlement!
Take Action! More than 1.9 million people are refugees in need of resettlement worldwide today - more than any time since World War Two. The Canadian government has made historic strides to welcome refugees in policy announcements and budget commitments. So far in 2016, Canada has successfully resettled more than 30,000 Syrian refugees. Now is the time to contact your MP to ask them to build on the good momentum of the last year by making long-term commitments to welcoming and settling vulnerable refugees from all areas of the world.
World leaders are gathering September 19 and 20 in New York City to coordinate their response to the refugee crisis. Here in Canada, the government is in the final stages of setting our refugee settlement levels for 2017-2019. With MPs headed back to the House of Commons soon, your voice is needed in support of more equitable and sustainable refugee resettlement! Click below to take action.
