World Leaders are Gathered to Address the Refugee Crisis - Act Now!
World leaders are gathering today and tomorrow in New York City to coordinate their response to the refugee crisis. Today is Ring for Refugees Day. Now is the time to act! Call your MP in support of more equitable and sustainable refugee resettlement in Canada! Click below to 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.
