On February 12th, 2019, Statistics Canada released the census data that was collected of the 25,000 Syrian refugees that were accepted into Canada throughout 2015-2016.

The government of Canada made the ambitious announcement in the wake of the ongoing war in Syria that has been taking place since 2011, and the ensuing humanitarian crisis worldwide.

One of the first challenges that Prime Minister Trudeau’s governments wanted to take on was the refugee crisis.
