Canada to provide $28 million to support return of displaced Iraqis, Syrians
The Canadian government has plans to provide over $28 million to help the return of Iraqi and Syrian people displaced in the country, Honourable Chrystia Freeland, the Minister of Foreign Affairs said on Friday 17th. Freeland said that she will attend an anti-Islamic State (ISIS) global coalition meeting with foreign ministers scheduled for March 22 in Washington D.C. In recent weeks Canada has demonstrated a more friendly approach to dealing with refugees and immigrants than its Trump-led neighbour. Canadian immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen announced on January 29 that Canada would offer temporary residency to people stranded in the U.S. as a result of President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.
