Encourage Canada to support Refugees

Every year at the beginning of November, the Canadian federal Cabinet sets the planned total number of incoming refugees and immigrants for the coming year. Our government is making these decisions now, and it’s important for citizens to communicate our perspectives. Many of us have experienced amazing blessings through our connections with refugees – we know that in the process of sponsorship, strangers become neighbours and cherished members of our communities. Let's join our voices with the Centre for Public Dialogue and Citizens for Public Justice and the Canadian Council of Refugees by urging our MP's to encourage generous settlement levels and continued government efforts to reduce wait times in the refugee sponsorship system. It's easy. Go to http://p2a.co/Ln7odB7 and fill out the form.

Our leadership team meeting on October 13-14 was marked with sadness and joy as Dorothy O’Brien passed gently into eternal life. She seems to have given us her blessing, since we were able to address in some way all three of the goals we set ourselves for the next four years (as well as celebrating Mary Anne Powers’ birthday!).
