The United Nations Refugee Agency, also known as UNHCR, helps people displaced by violence, persecution and conflict.
UNHCR works around the globe to aid and protect people forced to flee their homes due to violence, conflict, and persecution. We opened the doors to our Canadian office in 1976 and since that day, have worked tirelessly with civil society and the Canadian government to protect and aid asylum-seekers, refugees, resettled and stateless persons in Canada.
Please help refugee families in need.
