How can we help?

Bringing Syrians Home

It’s time to talk about bringing Syrians Home to Lethbridge because they have arrived with more on the way.   

 As a refugee destination centre, Lethbridge Family Services has been tasked by both the federal and provincial governments to prepare to settle larger numbers of refugees over the coming months.  If we are going to successfully achieve this  challenge, we need to ask community members to think about how they can best assist. As an agency, we are calling on Southern Alberta to help us welcome and support the largest refugee resettlement relocation movement in Alberta and Lethbridge’s history.  This is all towards the goal of bringing 25,000 Syrian governments assisted refugees to Canada.    To date there has been amazing work done by the community and if you would like to see how everyone is supporting the work of LFS, please check out this information package.   

If you have any questions, please contact the Immmigrant Services team at (403) 320-1589 or email refugee.crisis@lfsfamily.ca
