Australians and Canadians are working together to provide a lifeline for refugees who have been suffering since 2013 because of Australia’s offshore detention policy. Operation Not Forgotten is a community-led response to provide private sponsorship to Canada for refugees who were detained on Manus Island and Nauru and have been left with no viable resettlement option.
Sponsorship applications have already been lodged for 139 refugees in offshore processing and 94 separated family members (233 people in all). Dozens more applications are ready to go as soon as more funds are donated.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land we work on - the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, and the Wurrundjeri people of the Kulin nation. We pay respects to elders past and present, and acknowledge sovereignty was never ceded. We also acknowledge the unique role Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people have in welcoming refugees and people seeking asylum to this land.
