The cause

At least

528

newcomers were welcomed to Canada by the Office of Refugees of the Archdiocese of Toronto in 2019, with 532 resettlements initiated.

Nearly

4,000

people received resettlement services from Catholic Crosscultural Services last year– 500 more than the year before.

Since

2015

An influx of Syrian refugees has arrived in Canada. ShareLife agencies are providing ongoing settlement support no longer covered by government funding.
