In brief

Religious Congregations Actively Involved in Welcoming Refugees

The situation of Syrian refugees leaves no one indifferent. A number of congregations of women and men religious have become actively involved in many ways. We present a summary of the information received.


Emergency Aid for Syrians Update

"A joint fundraising campaign was launched in September 2015, aimed at involving all the Church in Canada in order to assist Syrian refugees seeking shelter and protection in the Middle East and parts of Europe. To date, the joint campaign has raised more than $3.5 million."

The joint campaign was launched with the support of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (D&P), Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) Canada, and the Catholic Near East Welfare Association Canada (CNEWA).

"On January 7, 2016, the Minister for International Development and La Francophonie, the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, announced that the federal government's period for matching donations toward Syrian emergency assistance has been extended until February 29, 2016."
