Resolution number:

June 2005
Whereas: 
  1. There are many Iraqis in European countries who have been refused refugee status by these countries,
  2. A number of these people have no durable solution in these European countries and have family members in Canada who have been accepted by Canada under the Convention Refugee or Country of Asylum Class,
  3. These people will be deported to Iraq as soon as the host countries consider it safe,
  4. These people no longer have family or homes in Iraq,
  5. The assisted relative program and last remaining member of the family programs no longer exist,
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR strongly urge Citizenship and Immigration Canada to develop a humanitarian and compassionate mechanism to allow these families to be reunited with family members in Canada.
