The time to advocate is now

syrian-refugee-crisis2.jpgThe Canadian Government has ended the special initiative that designated Syrian refugees as a priority. Now, it is business as usual for Immigration and Citizenship Canada handling refugee cases and all programs are operating with normal quotas.

Yet tens of thousands of people have raised millions of dollars to welcome refugees and help them resettle in Canada. The people are ready. The money is set aside. The need for help is extreme.

We encourage you to join us in supporting AURA’s Letter Campaign to increase the number of Blended Visa Office Referred (BVOR) cases available so that we can continue welcoming Syrian and Iraqi families displaced by the war to Canada.

The link above includes templates for writing to the:

  • Prime Minister
  • Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada
  • Your local MP

Simply download the templates, personalize the letters, and mail them off to show your readiness to help refugees in need!
