OTTAWA, March 4, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The National Council on Canada-Arab Relations (NCCAR), a non-profit that educates Canadians about social, economic, political and cultural issues of the Arab world and the Middle East, is delighted that Canada has reached its initial target of welcoming 25,000 Syrian refugees. "We truly appreciate the tremendous work by civil servants, volunteers and community organizers," said Rula Odeh, NCCAR's Executive Director. "While more work lies ahead to integrate the newest members of our Canadian family, Canadians can be proud of our ability to protect some of the most vulnerable members of our global community." As Canada builds on its recent successes and lessons learned, NCCAR looks forward to the next bold target for welcoming refugees. NCCAR is confident Canadians will rise to the challenge again with our time-tested values of generosity and openness.
