Ontario is a welcoming and inclusive society.
That’s why your Ontario Liberal team is working to ensure that the Syrian refugees arriving in Ontario receive the support they need to begin a new life in our communities.
We have been collaborating with federal and municipal government, mobilizing and identifying provincial resources to support the successful settlement of refugees.
Compassion is a value that defines us. We are committed to providing incoming refugees with health services and emergency medical assistance, and we are collaborating with the Canadian Red Cross to ensure that additional emergency social services are available if needed.
Earlier this year, our government committed $2 million to Syrian relief efforts. We are also investing $8.5 million to promote refugee sponsorship and ensure that immigrant and refugee serving agencies can expand services as needed.
