Afghan Refugee Initiative

The Government of Canada has committed to resettling approximately 40,000 vulnerable Afghans and they are arriving via various pathways, including as Government-Assisted Refugees, Privately Sponsored Refugees, and through the Blended Visa Office-Referred Program. Locally, the Regina Open Door Society delivers the Resettlement Assistance Program (RAP), providing essential settlement and support services in the initial weeks of arrival. After receiving the initial RAP support, the Afghan refugees, like all other Permanent Residents, are assessed and referred to the programs and services at local settlement agencies, and other pertinent community supports. 

*For inquiries about needed donations for Afghan and other global refugees, please contact the Donations Committee at  for more information.
