Update on Petition Success
Great news! The Canadian government announced today that they will welcome 10,000 Syrian refugees in the next three years! Thanks to all who signed our petition and shared with their friends. The National Council on Canada-Arab Relations (NCCAR) will be keeping on top of this file to ensure that it is implemented rapidly, responsively and fairly. We also acknowledge the work to date by various media outlets, immigration groups and political parties and others who raised this issue consistently in parliament and in the media.
