[Video] Google Thanks All Canadians that have Welcomed Syrian Refugees

Google has released a two minute video that focuses on thanking every Canadian that has welcomed Syrian refugees into our home and native land; the one and only beautiful country of Canada.

Unfortunately, one of the main focuses of the video is to try and advertise the use of their “Google Translate” product, but that still doesn’t take too much away from the main message of the video.

The video was just released last week, on April 27th.

Watch Google’s video “From Syria to Canada” here:

In December of 2015, Emad and his family left their home in Syria for a safer life in Ontario, Canada. Day by day, they are growing accustomed to a new home, country and language. This is just a small glimpse of their story. #refugeeswelcomeGoogle on YouTube


To every family that has taken a Syrian family under your roof, the greatest of thank yous to you and yours.

To the thousands of Syrian refugees from our past, present, and in the many months and years to come: Warmest welcome to your new home; Canada. ♥

If you took in a Syrian family under your wing, or if you’re a Syrian refugee yourself, please comment below and let us know of your experience thus far. We would absolutely love to hear from you.

    You can tell it’s a bit of an advertisement, but the message beyond it is strong and that’s what matters. Good job Canada <3
