About Australia’s Offshore Processing Policy
Canada and Australia are working to help refugees in Australia’s offshore detention centres. They have been “forgotten” on Manus Island and Nauru due to Australia’s Offshore Detention Policy.
Amnesty International describes these detention centres as “open air” prisons and concentration camps. While these centres are now closed, many refugees and asylum seekers still can’t leave.
Most refugees are from Iran, Myanmar, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Iraq. They were fleeing war, violence, and political or ethnic prosecution.
We want to show them and the world that they are NOT forgotten. They deserve a future. Operation #NotForgotten provides private sponsorship in Canada for these refugees.
Registration for this program is now closed.
