OMM Refugee Committee: Our Syrian Refugee family were interviewed in Ankara in January 2018 and accepted for Permanent Residence status at that time. They were told that they should expect to be in Canada within 4 to 6 months. We are still waiting notice that they are booked to come. We continue to be in contact with Catherine McKenna’s office who are our conduit to the government. We are assured that their documents are all in order and they are in line for next steps and that the government is working as fast as it can with the many refugees waiting.
Ottawa Monthly Meeting is currently blessed with an abundance of Young Adult Friends.* Many of the YAFs are now meeting for a potluck about once a month. If you self-identify as a YAF and aren't yet connected to this group, ask around on a Sunday or send the webminder an e-mail and I'll put you in touch.

Where any have received offence from any other, first to speak privately to the party concerned, and endeavour reconciliation between themselves; and not to whisper or aggravate matters against them behind their backs, to the making parties, and the breach wider.
