No matter where they come from, wherever they are, every child should feel safe and secure. Let's provide a safe haven for children fleeing conflict, so they can be back to being children again.

The diversity of cultures and experiences refugees bring to Canada is one of our biggest strengths. #RefugeesWelcome


There is no us and them, we are one human race. By protecting refugees from war or violence we live our values as Canadians. #RefugeesWelcome

When it comes to the values we hold dear as Canadians, basic human rights are something we can all agree on. Let’s stand up for the rights of all people, together.

In some countries, fleeing gender-based violence is not grounds for seeking asylum.
Women fleeing gender-based violence can find safety in Canada. #RefugeesWelcome

There is nothing polite about racism. Let's not focus on fear, but work to build a Canada where we champion values like inclusion and diversity. #RefugeesWelcome

When you are fleeing war or violence you seek a safe haven. Let’s ensure our system is fair to those seeking protection regardless of where they have sought refuge before. #RefugeesWelcome

When people flee for their lives, it’s not a choice. They come to Canada to survive. Let's live our Canadian values to be fair and welcoming to those seeking to build a new life. #RefugeesWelcome

LGBTQ people fleeing from hate, because of who they love, find equality in Canada. Let’s take pride in making Canada a safe haven. #RefugeesWelcome

When refugees are welcomed into Canada, they share culture, build relationships, and build our economy. #RefugeesWelcome
