Often, UNHCR Canada hosts events to raise awareness and funds for refugees around the world. Learn more about events that support UNHCR.
Our peer-to-peer fundraisers will also host events on behalf on UNHCR, where they raise money to help support refugees and displaced persons.
On June 20 each year, we also join the world in marking World Refugee Day, which Canadians celebrate across the country. Here are UNHCR Canada’s, and affiliate partners and fundraisers’, upcoming events that support UNHCR and our work.
