The City of Canterbury has been a Refugee Welcome Zone since September 2002. Recently, Council resolved to reaffirm its commitment to welcoming refugees in our City. To assist local residents to understand why refugees are welcome in our City, Council’s Multicultural Advisory Committee and the Refugee Council of Australia have organised a community forum in each Council ward where residents will be able to: find out real facts about refugees; hear about the impact of refugee policies; understand how Australia compares with other parts of the world; and meet some refugees and hear their success stories.
We invite you to attend one of our community forums on:
Thursday 19 June, starting at 5.45 pm, at Lakemba Senior Citizens Centre, Cnr The Boulevarde & Croydon Street, Lakemba.
Wednesday 23 July, starting at 6pm, at Riverwood Community Centre, 151 Belmore Road North, Riverwood
Wednesday 27 August, starting at 6pm, at Earlwood Senior Citizens Centre, Cnr Homer Street & Joy Avenue, Earlwood
Admission is free and light refreshments will be provided. For more information or to let us know of any access or dietary requirements please call 9789 9472.
