Anglican Church of Canada Refugee Action

Action on Refugee Rights:

Many Anglican parishes are Sponsorship Agreement Holders (SAHs). For a full list of Anglican churches across the country involved in refugee sponsorship, visit the Government of Canada’s website here.

The Anglican Church of Canada is partnered with Project Plowshares. Their work around refugee issues serve to:

  • Conduct research on key drivers of forced migration, particularly the role and impact of conventional weapons and armed conflicts.
  • Research durable solutions to forced migration: development, governance and peace-building.
  • Assess the varied nature of forced displacement and refugee populations.
