About the Shaw Festival Syrian Refugee Project

A group of Shaw Festival company members were inspired to reach out and do their part to help resettle Syrian families in Canada. Joining forces with two Niagara-on-the-Lake churches, St. Mark’s and Grace United; they were able to sponsor two families. One family has since arrived and is now settled in St. Catharines, while the second family’s arrival has been delayed due to the ongoing bombing in Turkey.
