Syrian Refugee Resettlement

MOSAIC has played a leading role for Syrian refugee re-settlement in Metro Vancouver.

Even before the federal government announced that Canada would welcome 25,000 Syrian refugees, MOSAIC had announced its preparedness to provide support for 1,000 displaced persons and called on local, provincial and federal governments to step up support. In a six month period since September 2015, MOSAIC worked with almost 1800 refugees, with close to 500 identified as being Syrian.
