Welcoming Syrian refugees to Calgary

​The City of Calgary is working with Calgary Catholic Immigration Society and our community partners to welcome and help resettle Syrian refugees in our great city. Together as a community, let’s ensure a warm welcome for our new neighbours and help them get the best possible start in Calgary.

Our role at The City is to support the coordination efforts of our community groups and help Calgarians learn more about our newest neighbours and how to welcome and support them.
