The conflict in Syria has claimed more than 100,000 lives. Over two million people have been displaced. Refugee camps in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon are overflowing.

No Canadian wants to see loved ones living in those conditions. Our government must help Canadian families to reunite in Canada on a humanitarian basis – as we have done before, during the Lebanese civil war, following the tsunami in South-East Asia, and following crises in Iraq, the Philippines, and Haiti.

This year, only nine Syrian refugees have been reunited with their families in Canada. 

Enough inaction. It’s time to help these Canadian families reunite on Canadian soil.

Sign the petition

We, the undersigned residents of Canada, recognize the following: 

  • The Syrian conflict has claimed more than 100,000 lives and displaced more than two million civilians.
  • Many Canadians are deeply worried for the safety of their relatives in Syrian refugee camps.
  • The Conservative Minister of Citizenship and Immigration refuses to meet with the Syrian-Canadian community to discuss family reunification on humanitarian grounds.

Therefore, we call on the Government of Canada to change course and expedite family reunification for Syrian refugees who have relatives in Canada.
