Canada enhances commitments and collaborations at the Global Refugee Forum

On December 15, 2023, Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), attended the Global Refugee Forum in Geneva, endorsing pledges for global refugee solutions. He announced $21 million for the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to aid Afghan populations in Central Asia and Pakistan. This funding will help these countries assist the refugees. Canada plans to resettle over 136,000 refugees in the next three years, focusing on vulnerable groups like women, ethnic and religious minorities, LGBTQI+ communities, Rohingya refugees and human rights defenders. Canada is committed to expanding refugee labour and education pathways and co-sponsored the Securing Sustainable Futures mega-pledge for refugee education. Canada also funds the IOM to support Mexico in managing migration due to climate change.
