TAKE THE REFUGEES WELCOME HERE! PLEDGE

Refugee protection is enjoying a renaissance in Canada, with the generous response of people across the country to the dire situation of Syrian refugees.  The partners in the Refugees Welcome Here! campaign would like to build on this energy and compassion. 

We are calling on Canada to extend protection to refugees from all regions by:

1. making an ongoing commitment to a sustainable refugee resettlement program, 

2. ensuring fairness for refugees who claim protection when they arrive in Canada, and

3. giving refugees a warm welcome, and the best possible opportunity to make Canada a happy home for their families.

We believe we can contribute to this vision by making sure that Canadians are well informed about refugees, their needs and their human rights.  We have created some resources to help Canadians inform themselves and their neighbours about refugee rights.  And we are asking that you make a personal engagement to be a part of refugee protection in Canada. 

Please take the Refugees Welcome Here! Pledge. 

I AM PROUD to open Canada’s doors to those fleeing grave human rights abuses.

I  WILL STRIVE to keep Canada’s doors open now and into the future.

I WILL CHALLENGE and rebut negative stereotypes about refugees.

I WILL SUPPORT speedy reunification for refugee families.

I WILL DEMAND fair procedures for refugees in Canada.

I WILL MAKE a gesture of welcome to refugees in my community.

I CALL ON CANADA to be a leader for refugee rights.

Please share your knowledge with others.   Please work together with refugees and with us to ensure that respect for refugee rights is an integral part of Canadian policy.
