The Government of Canada is on track to welcome at least 40000 Afghans by the end of 2023

As the Government of Canada works toward resettling at least 40,000 Afghan nationals by the end of this year, communities across Canada continue to welcome Afghans and assist them in settling in.

The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, made the announcement on April 12 that since August 2021, Canada has received over 30,000 Afghan refugees. On a charter flight from Pakistan, the most recent newcomers arrived in Toronto, Ontario. They are Afghans who supported Canada’s mission in Afghanistan, family members of former Afghan interpreters, and refugees sponsored by private companies who were brought in by the humanitarian stream. Women leaders, human rights defenders, persecuted and religious minorities, 2SLGBTQI+ individuals, and journalists are among the most at-risk Afghans targeted by Canada’s humanitarian resettlement program.

On twelfth April fresh debuts will get comfortable networks across Canada, including Surrey (BC), Toronto and London (ON).

The Public authority of Canada is on target to invite somewhere around 40,000 Afghans toward the finish of 2023. However, many Afghans continue to face significant dangers when attempting to leave the country, or they are simply unable to do so on their own. Due to the absence of a Canadian diplomatic or military presence in Afghanistan, significant obstacles remain. We are exploring what is happening in Afghanistan, where development keeps on being truly challenging and risky.

Many Afghans have found safety in Canada as a result of ongoing cooperation with regional partners like Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, and others in the region. The contributions of additional international organizations and referral partners, such as Frontline Defenders, ProtectDefenders.eu, the United Nations Refugee Agency, and the International Organization for Migration (IOM). cannot be overemphasized. This achievement is possible in Canada because of the significant efforts of provincial and territorial partners, municipalities, resettlement service providers, and thousands of Canadians.
