A Model for the World
CANADA HELPING REFUGEES
Canada is the world’s first country to have a refugee sponsorship programme in which private citizens and the community are directly involved in the resettlement of refugees from other countries. It has served as a model for other countries all over the world. Individuals who have fled their home country because they are afraid of persecution because of their race, religion, social group, political opinion, gender, sexual orientation, or nationality may be given refugee status in Canada.
