Canadian Council for Refugees E-Chronicle Vol. 5 #9, 13 January 2011
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?
Do you want to be part of efforts to promote rights for refugees?
