Refugee’s Resettlement Journey to Canada


As you may recall, IRCC released an animated video about resettlement called “A Refugee’s Resettlement Journey to Canada” in December 2020. We’ve made some updates to that video, and are pleased to share the new links with you. 


This video is available on YouTube in the following languages

If you have already promoted or embedded the original version on your website, we ask that you kindly update it using the new links, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

And it has now been posted on IRCC’s Video Centre with full descriptive transcripts in English and French

We are also asking for your help to promote the video so that it reaches resettled refugees, sponsors and others who interact with refugees who are destined for Canada. It would be wonderful if you could promote the video on an ongoing basis (for example, on World Refugee Day, June 20). We also encourage the use of this video as part of orientation materials and activities for all resettled refugees.
