Join the call for increased refugee resettlement and suspension of the Safe Third Country Agreement

In the wake of the anti-refugee and anti-muslim measures adopted by President Trump, join the CCR in calling on the Canadian government to:

  • Increase the refugee resettlement targets for 2017 (both Government-Assisted and privately sponsored)
  • Offer to resettle, on an emergency basis, refugees who were approved for resettlement to the US but are now denied entry to the US, over and above Canada’s refugee resettlement targets for 2017.
  • Suspend the Safe Third Country Agreement, so that refugees are not turned back at the US-Canada border.

Contact your Member of Parliament to have your voice heard.
