UNHCR Canada runs many different campaigns in order to advocate for, and with, refugees. Check out our campaigns and learn more about how you can get involved!
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.
In Canada, refugees have the highest rate of citizenship among any immigration categories, showing their commitment to Canada and its people in remarkable numbers. For these people – those who have fled conflict, persecution and violence in the hopes of a better life – they are able to say “I Was A Refugee”. These are their stories.
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.
Canada has a proud tradition of welcoming refugees. Between World Refugee Day (June 20) and Canada Day (July 1), UNHCR Canada celebrated the diverse stories of people who came to Canada #FromFarAndWide in search of safety in order to shine a light on how they have enriched the fabric of our communities from coast to coast to coast.
Please help refugee families in need.
