Continued Welcome and Support for Syrian Refugees

Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration

Since the first airplane of refugees from the Syrian conflict touched down in Ontario one year ago this week, more than 14,000 refugees have found safety and a new start in the province, with the support of the provincial government, municipalities, community service providers, sponsors and volunteers.

More Information: 

Ontario has received more than 40 per cent of refugee arrivals to Canada. Those refugees have been settling into their new lives with the help of language training, employment training, school enrolment and are already giving back to their communities through volunteerism .

Moving forward, the province continues to aim to support refugee families, through provincially funded refugee service providers.
