Canada gives United Nations $100 million for Syrian refugee relief

Toronto Star November 26, 2015

International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau says the contribution is part of the government's promise to resettle Syrian refugees in Canada over the next few months.

"Canada is coming out very strongly, not only with this exceptional program of resettling the 25,000 Syrian refugees, but the financial support to UNHCR is absolutely crucial," Furio de Angelis, the UN agency's Ottawa representative, told The Canadian Press.
