Here are the communities waiting to welcome Syrian refugees to Canada


Canada may not have met the ambitious target of resettling 25,000 Syrian refugees by year-end, or the 10,000 revised amount, but there are many, many on their way.

So far, 25,000 Syrian refugees have been identified as candidates for resettlement and there are a number of communities across the country that have applied to privately sponsor them. Here’s where the applications currently in the federal government’s inventory are coming from (Quebec is not included since it’s responsible for approving its own refugee sponsorships).
