e-725 (Refugees)

Initiated by ariel franco from L'Assomption, Quebec

Original language of petition: French

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • The current living conditions for the Ishtai family are very difficult, especially for the three young children;
  • Hundreds of residents, five schools and one organization that specializes in immigrant integration services have all come together to sponsor a Syrian refugee family in the Assomption RCM;
  • Our group is ready to welcome, guide and support the Ishtai family as soon as it arrives in Canada (having raised nearly $30,000 in less than one year); and
  • Administrative delays are getting longer and longer, leading to disappointment and a loss of confidence not only within the community, but also within the Ishtai family.
We, the undersigned citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to expedite the processing of our sponsorship application for the Ishtai family.
