Canada To Take In Family Members Of Canadians Seeking Safety From Gaza

via Global News

Canada will allow extended families of Canadians in the war-torn Gaza Strip to migrate to the country for up to three years starting January 9.

The move broadens categories for temporary sanctuary and financial support, including reunification with various family members.

The decision contrasts with neighboring countries’ refusal to accept Palestinian refugees. (Trending: Assault Weapons Ban Set To Take Effect, Here’s What To Know)

Canada expects hundreds to be eligible for refugee status, and the new measures also provide support for those who have already fled to Canada, including waiving fees for work and study permits.

“Many are concerned about the safety of loved ones currently residing in Gaza. It is unlivable,” Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister Marc Miller said.

“This expands the definition and allows us a greater set of people that may not be permanent residents or Canadians, but for all intents and purposes represent the family.”

“We will do our utmost to assist but cannot guarantee safe passage. Canada does not determine who, when or how many persons can cross Rafah on any particular day,” Miller added.
