First flight bringing Afghans who helped military arrives in Canada, with more still to come

A government flight carrying dozens of Afghan workers who assisted the Canadian military during the war in Afghanistan has landed in Toronto, the federal government confirmed Wednesday evening.

It's the first flight to arrive under a special immigration program to bring in Afghans as government-assisted refugees.

"Today, the Government of Canada is welcoming the first of a number of flights carrying Afghan refugees who provided crucial support to Canadian Armed Forces members in Afghanistan," said a statement issued by several federal ministers involved in the resettlement program.
