Great news from Canada! Our northern neighbors have just announced that they are extending their resettlement program for Iraqi refugees, allowing more of the Iraq War’s stranded families to build a safe and prosperous future in Canada. IRAP is extremely happy that Canada has responded to this continuing crisis. The Canadian people should be happy as well. Iraqi immigrants have been contributing to both Canadian and American society for decades. The majority of the Iraqi refugees we work with are college educated, and many have advanced technical degrees. Having survived the horrors of war and the challenges of life as refugee, the Iraqis who will settle in Canada under the extension are certain to make strong contributions to their new nation.
