The Canadian government continues to welcome Afghan refugees


The Canadian government continues to welcome Afghan refugees

The government of Canada made a new update regarding the Afghan refugees in the country on June 17, 2022.


As of now, Canada has welcomed a total of 15,715 Afghan refugees. The government of Canada aimed to bring at least 40,000 Afghan nationals to Canada through the special programs for Afghan refugees, as well as via the special immigration program for Afghan nationals who assisted Canadian forces in Afghanistan.


Canada has a long and illustrious history of welcoming the world's most vulnerable people, defending and improving their lives on a daily basis. Canadians in all corners of the country are continuing to open their doors to Afghan refugees, as well as those from across the globe.


Through the special programs, the government will resettle:

  • 5,000 Afghans through the permanent residence pathway for extended family members of former interpreters

  • 18,000 Afghans through the special immigration program for Afghan nationals who closely assisted our efforts in Afghanistan

  • a mix of government-assisted and privately sponsored Afghan refugees through the humanitarian program

The government will also continue to explore other options to bring Afghans to Canada, including the Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot.
