World Refugee Day – June 20

For the last 10 years MAP members have come together to celebrate the resilience and creativity of refugees, as well as their welcome here in BC. We join together with many different agencies to recognize and commemorate the extraordinary journeys of people who have sought safety in Canada.

Every year MAP co-hosts the World Refugee Day events with Vancouver Public Library. The event usually features a marketplace of over 25 Government and non-Government agencies and showcases their services.

Over the years, we have also helped people understand what people who are refugees go through via an experiential journey through the process of a refugee claim as well as delivering programs of interactive and engaging talks by refugees, lawyers representing refugees and others.
