Welcome to Syrian refugees

Wishing to do its part to contribute to the international community’s efforts to resolve the humanitarian crisis in Syria, Québec will receive 3650 Syrian refugees by the end of 2015 and a similar number in 2016.

As of May 23, 2016, Québec had welcomed 5636 Syrian refugees, including 3712 adults and 1924 children (in French - PDF, 139 Kb).

In addition to numerous organizations and institutions working in cities across Québec to prepare for their arrival, thousands of Quebecers are mobilizing to offer their help.
