Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
11
November 2002
Whereas: 
  1. Since 1985 many Tibetans have been living in India and Nepal without prospects of local integration;
  2. Today the deteriorating political situation in India and Nepal has further placed these refugees in jeopardy;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR ask CIC to:

  1. Consider the precarious security situations of Tibetans in certain countries of asylum, in particular those in India and Nepal, and to process applications for resettlement to Canada through both the government assisted and the private sponsorship of refugees programs as expeditiously as possible;
  2. Expedite landing and family reunification of Tibetans by accepting their identity documents issued by the Tibetan government in exile.
