Learn more about UNHCR’s campaigns, which highlight the stories and experiences of displaced communities, promote UNHCR’s work and bring attention to crises worldwide.
UNHCR Canada runs many different campaigns in order to advocate both for and with refugees. These initiatives are accessible and interactive ways to learn more about displaced communities. Current campaigns include the global Cities #WithRefugees campaign which has more than 20 cities in Canada as signatories, and #UNHCROnMission, which focuses on the work of UNHCR’s country operations worldwide.
In addition to initiatives within Canada, UNHCR Canada also supports global campaigns. #IBelong is a campaign that aims to end statelessness in 10 years. The Youth #WithRefugees Art Contest is a campaign which asks children and young adults to use their creativity in visual arts in support of refugees. The Aiming Higher campaign helps fund talented refugee scholars. Learn more about UNHCR’s international campaigns on the global website.
Through UNHCR’s campaigns, you can have your voice heard while supporting displaced families. Check out our current Canadians campaigns below and learn more about how you can get involved! You can also visit our Petitions page, where you can add your name to various UNHCR pledges.
Cities across Canada are embracing refugees and becoming more connected because refugees are here, becoming colleagues, neighbours, and friends. At a time when conflict and persecution is uprooting millions of people worldwide, Canadian cities need to continue their support for refugees.
UNHCR Canada is travelling far and wide to visit refugees who have made Canada their home over the past 70 years. We invite you to watch, read, and cook alongside fellow Canadians and refugees as we learn about their stories, families, favourite home-cooked meals, traditions, and more.
Please help refugee families in need.
