This group is the first of 25,000 refugees who are being relocated to Canada, and they’ve received an overwhelmingly warm reception so far, with even children participating.

And messages of peace and love are pouring in from all over the country.
Dear refugees, we want you here. We are glad you came. Wishing you peace and love here in your new home. #WelcomeToCanada
