How Can You Help Refugees? Make A Donation!

Sign a Petition!

Government Assisted Refugees (GARs) resettled to Canada must pay for their overseas medical exam and travel to Canada. Since most refugees can’t afford these expenses, Canada offers them a loan. As a result, refugee families start their new life in Canada with a debt of up to $10,000. They must repay this loan with interest. Learn more.

Please consider signing the City of Surrey’s petition calling on the Government of Canada to immediately cancel all outstanding GAR transportation loan debt and to cease seeking repayment of the transportation and pre-entry medical costs for all new GARs coming to Canada.
