Help from within Canada

Canada has several programs to help refugees resettle in Canada.

Health care

The Interim Federal Health Program provides limited and temporary coverage of health care benefits to refugees.

Help to adjust

Moving to a new country is never easy. With funds from CIC, service provider organizations offer programs that can help refugees adjust to life in Canada.

Financial assistance

The Canadian government has several financial programs to help refugees establish themselves in their new home.

Assistance for government-sponsored refugees

Government-assisted refugees receive initial resettlement support in Canada from the Government of Canada or Quebec. This support is delivered by CIC-supported non-governmental agencies.

Your rights

You have certain rights as a refugee and may have access to Canadian services while you are in Canada. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects all people in Canada.
