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.

Tissu communautaire
Description: Les cinq membres de la famille Al Zhouri ont été réinstallés dans la ville d’Antigonish, sur les côtes orientales du Canada, en janvier 2016. L’aide du pays était plus qu’attendue ; face au conflit syrien, les Al Zhouri ont abandonné leur maison d’Al-Qusayr pour rejoindre le Liban et pendant cinq ans, ils n’ont pu ni travailler, ni aller à l’école. Pour Antigonish et pour la province de Nouvelle-Écosse, l’accueil de réfugiés avait deux objectifs : abriter des personnes dans le besoin et reconstituer une population en déclin avec des travailleurs capables. Depuis des générations, les jeunes qualifiés, hommes et femmes, désertent la région au profit de l'ouest du pays où ils trouvent de meilleurs emplois. D'ici la fin de 2016, la Nouvelle-Écosse espère avoir accueilli 1500 Syriens. Grâce aux compétences aiguisées par des années d’enseignement de la coupe et de la couture en Syrie, Rabiaa peut désormais subvenir aux besoins de sa famille et se tient occupée. Ton histoire est une épopée est une série de profils concernant des citoyens canadiens qui ont accueilli des réfugiés syriens avec compassion et soutien. A travers tout le pays, des étrangers, des amis, des familles et des communautés créent de puissants liens d'amitié qui transcendent le langage et la culture.

Ton histoire est une épopée : des racines communes
Description: D'un océan à l'autre, les Canadiens continuent de manifester leur soutien aux réfugiés syriens. En les abritant et en les intégrant dans leurs communautés, ils créent des liens d'amitié puissants et qui auraient pu sembler improbables. « Ton histoire est une épopée » dresse les portraits de diverses communautés se proposant d’accueillir ces familles, déroutées par la situation géographique ou la langue. A Toronto, une ancienne réfugiée vietnamienne développe une relation étroite avec une jeune fille syrienne, retrouvant beaucoup de sa propre adolescence dans le parcours de cette adolescente. Plus au nord, une communauté du Yukon emploie une famille de 11 personnes, leur enseignant la pêche et le patinage. Dans ce vaste pays, les amis et les étrangers montrent l’exemple au monde. Certains passent leur temps à enseigner l'anglais, d'autres emmènent des familles pour des promenades au parc. Tous sont unis par la conviction que des communautés fortes renforcent le Canada. CONTEXTE : Lorsque Paul Waldner se rendit chez son père, le chef de la communauté huttérite des Acres Vertes, pour lui demander s’ils pouvaient parrainer une famille syrienne, la réponse ne s’est pas fait attendre. Les Huttériens, eux-mêmes réfugiés, vivaient de la générosité des autres. Peu de temps après, une famille de quatre personnes originaire de Hama est arrivée.
