On December 2, 2021, the first charter flight of privately sponsored Afghan refugees arrived in Canada. Around 250 vulnerable Afghan refugees who worked for Canada during and after the military mission — including women leaders, human rights defenders, persecuted minorities, LGBTI individuals, and journalists landed at Toronto Pearson International Airport. As a part of Canada’s humanitarian commitment, in the upcoming days, these refugees will be resettled into their host communities and follow the quarantine rules with the support of their private sponsors.
