Refugee Rights Day

April 4th has marked Refugee Rights Day in Canada since 1985, when the Supreme Court of Canada decided that everyone in Canada, including refugee claimants, is entitled to justice, life, liberty and security. The Canadian Council for Refugees notes that April 4th is a reminder of the progress that has been made in the protection of refugee rights in Canada as a result of the Singh decision. This day also serves as an opportunity to bring awareness to other current refugee issues.

Thank you to the more than 180 people who came to celebrate refugee rights this year! Special thanks to our team of volunteers, including many of our twins, a group of volunteers from TD Bank, some refugee claimants recently released from the detention centre, and others!

World Refugee Day

World Refugee Day has been celebrated on June 20th since 2001, coinciding with African Refugee Day, which had previously been celebrated in various countries prior to 2001. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) describes World Refugee Day as a day to celebrate the strength, courage, and resilience of millions of refugees around the world.

Action Réfugiés Montréal works closely with the UNHCR and other dedicated local organizations to bring attention to World Refugee Day and celebrate refugees in the Montreal region.
