Canada and Refugees

Canada is recognized around the world for its leadership in offering safe haven to people in need of refugee protection. Refugees bring their experiences, hopes, and dreams with them to Canada, helping to build an even richer and more prosperous society for us all.

Canada provides protection to those who make refugee protection claims in Canada, resettles refugees from abroad, and takes part in international actions to help prevent refugee situations from developing.
