Join us for a panel to generate debate on Canada's Syrian Refugee program. The panel will be followed by a reception to raise funds, featuring not only Syrian music, contributed by the Syria Film Festival, but also Syrian food and community booths.
The event will raise money for the Marhaba Committee and other private sponsorship groups under the Ryerson University Lifeline Syria Challenge initiative to support Syrian refugees in Toronto. All funds raised will directly support the relocation of Syrian refugees entering Canada through private sponsorship groups.
