The NDP stands firmly and fully in support of these calls for action. The NDP is urgently calling on the Government of Canada to adopt the following recommendations.
That the Government of Canada ensure that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada reduce the documentation requirements and allow persecuted Afghans’ paperwork and biometrics to be completed when they are safely on Canadian soil.
That the Government of Canada provide evacuation flights to Afghans in third countries.
That the Government of Canada apply the special immigration measures for Ukraine to Afghanistan.
That the Government of Canada expand and renew the special immigration measures for Afghans for another year, so that those who are eligible have another opportunity to apply.
