Canada welcomed the first Afghan refugees through the special immigration program

On August 4, 2021, the Government of Canada welcomed the first group of Afghan refugees in the country. Since these refugees came to Canada as government-assisted refugees, service provider organizations in communities across Canada will assist and help them to find permanent housing, language training, a job and provide information about life in Canada. According to Minister Mendicino, Canada is ‘committed to do right by the Afghans who supported Canada’s mission in Afghanistan.’ In the upcoming days, more flights with Afghan refugees will be arriving in the country.
