Newfoundland welcomes 116 Afghan refugees

On Tuesday evening a plane carrying 116 Afghan refugees arrived in St. John’s to start a new life in Canada.

The Afghans who arrived are those who worked with Canadian and NATO-led efforts in the country.

This is the first group of Afghans to land in Canada outside of Calgary or Toronto.

The Federal Government will provide resettlement supports for the next year and even longer as required.
