A Message from the Canadian Council of Churches

“You shall treat the stranger who resides with you as one born among you. You shall love that one as yourself" - Lev 19:34

“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing so some has shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” - Hebrews 13:2

For decades, Christian communities in Canada have responded with deep compassion and sponsored refugees from all corners of the earth. Refugee resettlement has been our work over many generations. Today, a refugee crisis of immense and unprecedented dimension is unfolding. Millions of Syrians have been displaced. We are moved to tears and compelled to act.
