Cosmopolis Toronto: The World in One City

Finding Refuge

What does it mean to feel safe? For these Torontonians, it was conflict that forced them to leave their countries of birth. Follow their journeys across great distances and throughout the decades as they search for a place to live peacefully, raise a family and look forward to the future. Their diverse stories are a reminder that Canada should always remain open to those in search of refuge.
