Reasons to be Proud to Protect Refugees

Why should we be proud to protect refugees?

Here are some top reasons:

  1. Defending human rights by protecting the world’s most vulnerable citizens is an essential Canadian value
  2. Everyone deserves to be treated fairly with respect and dignity
  3. Refugees who have been welcomed in our communities enrich our lives
  4. Many Canadians are alive today because they or their parents found refuge here
  5. As a leader in the world community, Canada must honour our international obligations towards refugees that we have signed and ratified
