Refugees

Unless you are an Aboriginal person, people in Canada must know that their family line is from someplace else. Immigrants and refugees are a central part of the Canadian story. As a denomination established in the 20th century by immigrants to this country, we are well placed to be supportive to the continuing refugees and immigrants who come to this new land. See how your congregation can be a part of someone else’s healthy inclusion to our country.
