News from the Field
UNHCR has a global network of information officers who report daily on the agency's varied activities on behalf of uprooted people around the world. This information is released locally to the media, or sent to Geneva headquarters for editing before it is released in the form of press releases, web stories or by the UNHCR spokesperson at twice-weekly briefings at the Palais des Nations, the UN's European headquarters. UNHCR's presence in more than 125 countries, including in some of the most remote and difficult places on Earth, gives it access to news and information that are not available from anyone else.
Links to stories from our most critical areas of concern, up-to-date information on the situations and information about how our Canadian donors can help.
Published news stories from the last six months on UNHCR's varied activities on behalf of uprooted people around the world that are of particular interest to our Canadian donors.
The Activities and Resources section aims to provide a consolidated view of major activities undertaken by UNHCR Canada.
