Conservative MP calls for expansion of resettlement program for Afghans – July 21, 2022

July 21, 2022 at 7:40 am  Federal, Politics



On Parliament Hill, Conservative immigration critic Jasraj Singh Hallan discusses the federal government’s special immigration program to resettle Afghan nationals who provided critical assistance to Canadian forces during their mission in Afghanistan and those who worked at the Canadian embassy in Kabul. He is joined by Afghan advocates. Canada committed to resettling 18,000 Afghan nationals through the program, which was announced one year ago on July 23, 2021. Hallan calls on the government to expand the program. He is also urging implementation of recommendations made by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada to the House of Commons Special Committee on Afghanistan, and acceleration of the Afghan resettlement process.
