Special COVID-19 Refugee Claimant Measures

Take action

The CCR is calling on the federal government to introduce Special COVID-19 Refugee Claimant Measures:

  1. That special measures be introduced for refugee claimants, in light of the pandemic.
  2. That refugee claimants be landed if they apply and meet minimum requirements.
  3. That applicants for the special measures not be required to withdraw their refugee claims while their application is in process (and thus maintain basic rights such as health care and a work permit).

The CCR invites you to advocate to local Members of Parliament and provincial government to support the proposed special COVID-19 Refugee Claimant Measures.

Urge them to open the dooors wide - this is a time that calls for meaningful solutions!
