Colleges and Institutes Canada

Support for refugees

In February, Russia invaded Ukraine. We immediately set to work to ensure that our members were well placed to support Ukrainians fleeing violence in their country. In less than three months, 43 CICan member colleges and institutes came together to provide over 150 scholarships and other support for Ukrainians students.

From October to March, we also engaged with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to discuss how colleges and institutes across the country could contribute to resettlement efforts for Afghan refugees. Overall, we met with 34 settlement organizations to share how our sector could help.
