Refuge Canada Exhibit Open to the Public
March 2, 2024 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
No one wants to be a refugee. Anyone could become a refugee.
Refugees face shattered lives and often make dangerous voyages in search of refuge. In the 20th century, Canada had a mixed record in welcoming refugees, reacting generously to some while overlooking others. Today, an estimated 65.6 million people are forced to flee their homes because of fear and violence.
In the time it took you to read this, another 20 people were forced from their homes.
