UNHCR welcomes new Canadian and international foundation partners, committed to honouring each philanthropic focus within the larger context of our work. Our partner foundations make a difference.

The support UNHCR Canada receives from our foundations helps provide lifesaving aid to displaced communities. Some of Canada’s leading organizations are helping us maximize our impact by helping us to deliver aid and solutions to millions of refugees, asylum seekers, displaced communities and stateless persons worldwide.
