Does government provide all the support to government-assisted refugees?
No. Organizations across Canada provide initial support services for government-assisted refugees, with funding from the federal government and other sources, such as provincial or municipal governments, and non-profit organizations. The Government of Canada also:
- provides financial support for government-assisted refugees, and
- funds longer term settlement support services for them.
Provinces also fund organizations to provide services for permanent residents and Canadian citizens.
Note: The province of Quebec provides money and support services to government-assisted refugees in Quebec.
