Are you looking for help?
From learning about who can get refugee protection in Canada, to finding out what happens when you claim asylum at the border, our resources will help you navigate the Canadian asylum system. Find the latest updates on seeking asylum in Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We pride ourselves on ensuring resources are used responsibly. That’s why we can send 81 cents of every one dollar you donate directly to uprooted families, giving them hope for a brighter future. In addition, 15 cents of every dollar goes to support the implementation of our programs around the world—with only 4 cents going towards management and administrative costs.
