  • Poets Raise Money to Help Syrian Refugees

    In the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, poets in the city of Saskatoon are holding a special event to raise money to help Syrian refugees who will be settling in the community. What makes this fundraising event extra special is that the poets themselves are people who completed the Canadian immigration process years ago and are now reaching out to help the latest newcomers to Canada.

     

    During the Refugees Welcome Multicultural Poetry Night which is being held in the middle of January 2016 at the Fédération des francophones de Saskatoon, seven poets will share poems in English and their native language that are related to their various Canadian immigration experiences. The poets are immigrants or refugees originally from countries ranging from Bosnia to Brazil.

     

    In addition to raising money to help Syrian refugees arriving in Saskatoon, other goals of the event are to make refugees feel welcomed, as well as to educate the community about the experiences of people who immigrate to Canada.

     

    Several refugees who have fled the Syrian Civil War have already settled in the city of Saskatoon and many more are expected to immigrate to Canada in the coming weeks and months and move to the province of Saskatchewan, as well as other Canadian provinces.

     

    Canada is an immigrant-friendly country which has overwhelmingly opened its arms to help Syrian refugees. The goal of the new Canadian government is to bring 25,000 Syrian refugees to Canada by February 2016 so they can live as permanent residents of one of the most peaceful and prosperous countries on Earth.

     

    In addition to welcoming refugees from Syria and other countries around the globe, the Canadian government and businesses are also seeking thousands of skilled foreign workers to immigrate to Canada so they can contribute to the economy.

     

    Canada already has one of the most multicultural populations in the world and it is expected to become even more diverse in the coming years as more people move to Canada in pursuit of better opportunities. Although some will arrive as refugees, the majority of people who move to Canada will arrive as “economic immigrants” through special Canadian immigration programs created to bring skilled foreign workers to Canada.
