Kill Bill C-585 Which Would Deny Refugee Claimants Social Assistance

Bill C-585 seeks to deny access to social assistance to refugee claimants. This is a crucial lifeline for individuals who have often escaped war and persecution when newly arrived. Frequently, refugee claimants cannot access work permits for months on end, and rely on social assistance to survive. We cannot support such a cruel policy.
