Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
May 1999
  1. Manitoba and British Columbia have recognized refugee claimants as legitimate recipients of settlement services;
  2. The CCR believes it is necessary to provide services to all newcomers to Canada, including refugee claimants;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR urge that:

  1. Refugee claimants be included in any and all funding formulas as legitimate recipients of settlement services throughout Canada;
  2. Additional funds be made available for settlement agencies to provide appropriate levels of services to this client group;
  3. The provinces that receive fewer numbers of refugee claimants not be financially penalized by this reality.
