honorablea)      2010 in Review: Refugee rights in Canada

 

The Canadian Council for Refugees believes in treating refugees and immigrants fairly and honourably.  Decisions made need to be fully independent.  And our policies and practices need to be affordable – for refugees and immigrants, and for Canadians.

How did Canada match up to these standards in 2010?

The CCR has prepared a review of the past year as it relates to Canada's response to refugees and immigrants.  Read it at: http://ccrweb.ca/en/2010_review
