Syrian Refugees Arrive in Canada

Niagara Refugee Assistance Committee

Syrian Refugee Information Portal


Thank you to the people of Niagara for all your support!

The Syrian Refugee Information Portal is a centralized source of information about the refugee crisis and how individuals, groups, organizations and corporations can help the Niagara Refugee Assistance Committee ensure the successful resettlement of refugees to the Niagara Region.


Volunteers are involved with program support and delivery, administration, event planning and completion, leadership and many hands on opportunities.
