Syrian Refugee Family

Syrian Refugees

Sometimes a project teaches you funamental lessons about life - and this is one of them. Over the past four months, through the production of a film for Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada, we’ve had the singular honour of getting to know three Syrian families, all part of Canada’s GAR (government-assisted regugee) program. While each family’s story is different, there’s a common thread - humility, a sense of wonder about how friendly and inviting Canadians are, and a sense of hope and optimism about what Canada can offer these wonderful men, women and children. The experience has made us all stop and reflect on how fortunate we are, and how fragile and how crucial Canada’s culture is.
