Resettling Bhutanese Refugees – Canada’s Commitment

What is Canada doing to help Bhutanese refugees?images

Bhutanese refugees of ethnic Nepalese descent have been living in seven camps in eastern Nepal since the early 1990s. Canada is part of a group of eight countries which includes Australia, Denmark, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the United States and the United Kingdom which are taking steps to address this long-standing situation by resettling some of these refugees.

In May 2007, the Government of Canada announced that it would resettle up to 5,000 Bhutanese refugees over the next three to five years.

In June 2012, the Government announced that it would resettle up to 500 more refugees with family connections in Canada.

Plans to resettle up to 1,000 more Bhutanese refugees were announced in March 2013.

In total, Canada will resettle up to 6,500 Bhutanese refugees who have been living for nearly two decades in U.N. run camps
