Get Involved

The Student Refugee Program depends on support from many individuals and institutions in Canada and around the world. If you are interested in creating life-changing opportunities for young refugees, join us! There are many ways to get involved.

WUSC is mobilizing resources in order to expand the number of spaces in our Student Refugee Program for the 2022-2023 academic year to resettle additional Afghan refugee students to Canada in collaboration with the Government of Canada and our network of sponsoring universities, colleges, and CEGEPs. Please check back here soon for more information.
