How can Canadians help in our response to the Syrian crisis?
Canada has a rich history of supporting those in need of protection and safety. This is a time for Canadians to come together as we open our hearts and communities to welcome refugees to their new home.
You can help make a difference in their lives in a number of different ways:
- Volunteer with an organization that works with newcomers in your area
- Work with thrift stores, food banks and charities
- Donate funds locally or internationally
- Sponsoring a refugee.
