  • IRCC recently confirmed the 2017 GAR target to BC will be
    900 individuals; 720 are currently destined to Metro Vancouver
    while the remaining GARs target (along with 89 in reserve) will
    be destined to other communities in BC including Victoria,
    Nanaimo, Kelowna, Vernon, Abbotsford;
  • Future GAR source countries will likely continue to be from Syria,
    Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Congo and Eritrea with the majority speaking
    Arabic;
  • Over the past 3 months we have received a higher number of
    GARs with physical limitations which in turn, has created
    permanent housing search challenges.
