Refugees in Canada: From Far and Wide: Common Ground
Description: When Paul Waldner went to his father, the leader of the Green Acres Hutterite Colony, asking if they should sponsor a Syrian family, the answer required no pause. He was told the Hutterites, themselves once refugees, thrived through the generosity of others. Shortly after, a family of four from Hama arrived. From coast to coast, Canadians continue to show an outpouring of support for Syrian refugees. By housing them and including them as members of the community, they create powerful, if unlikely, bonds of friendship. From Far and Wide profiles the diverse group stepping up to welcome these families, unbound by geography or language.

Refugees in Canada: From Far and Wide: Taking a chance
Description: As an engineer working abroad in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, Ahmad Ayash and his wife Fatmeh enjoyed a good life in Syria. But when the war broke out, the family left everything behind. Arriving to the quiet fishing village of Lunenburg, Ahmad began work as his kids settled into school. David Friendly, the lead of the private sponsor group responsible for the family, spoke with Ahmad many times on Skype before the family’s arrival and felt an instant connection. David dropped hints to Ahmad that he was Jewish- a fact he worried might make the Syrians wary upon arrival. But he was forthright when they first met- and he says Ahmad sees them as long-lost cousins. “We understand each other more- on a deeper level- because of this shared history from the region,” says David. Now, the family is determined to be a part of the small, close-knit community. Equally, they’ve been embraced by the residents- highlighting the long history of Maritime communities welcoming immigrants and refugees.
