Resolution number:

November 2005
Whereas: 
  1. The current Resettlement Assistance Program provides 1 year financial support to regular Government Assisted Refugees (GARs) and 2 years support for refugees under Joint Assistance Sponsorship;
  2. A significant percentage of refugees arriving under the regular GAR stream are special needs cases;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR call upon CIC and the Québec government to establish a new GAR stream that would provide 2 year financial support to regular GARs with longer-term integration issues: medical problems, single mothers, those with little or no education. The other 2 streams would remain as is.

Working Group:
