Why should we be proud to protect refugees?
Here are some top reasons:
- Defending human rights by protecting the world’s most vulnerable citizens is an essential Canadian value
- Everyone deserves to be treated fairly with respect and dignity
- Refugees who have been welcomed in our communities enrich our lives
- Many Canadians are alive today because they or their parents found refuge here
- As a leader in the world community, Canada must honour our international obligations towards refugees that we have signed and ratified
