Are Refugees Good for Canada?

Wed, Feb 10, 2021 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Dr Huguette Hayden of the UCV refugee committee and UCV member since 2002 will introduce this evening’s presentation. She will reflect on her own experience with the refugee program and will introduce us to two young refugees, Ammar from Syria and Shaya from Iran who have recently arrived. They will tell their own stories.
There is always fear that refugees won’t integrate and will be a burden on the Canadian system(social assistance, health costs etc…). When the data are presented, you will decide for yourselves. In preparation for the evening, please read more about the United Nations Refugee Agency in Canada at <https://www.unhcr.ca/>

Log in to our Zoom room ucv.im/action early from 6:45pm on Wednesday evenings as we start right at 7.
