A refugee is a person who has fled their own country because they are at risk of serious human rights violations and persecution there.
What did Canada do for refugees?
The objectives of Canada’s refugee program are to save lives, offer protection to the displaced and persecuted, meet Canada’s international legal obligations with respect to refugees, and respond to international crises by providing assistance to those in need of resettlement.
Canada provides income support under the RAP to eligible refugees who cannot pay for their own basic needs. Support can include a: one-time household start-up allowance, and a monthly income support system.
