In 2018, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, then-foreign affairs minister, and Bob Rae, then special envoy to Myanmar, met on the Rohingya issue with community leaders in Canada. Despite all their successful activism, organizing events, raising public awareness, briefing politicians, campaigning and the like, we are not aware of any Rohingya groups or leaders in Canada receiving financial support either from the Government of Canada or from major NGOs which they assist, write Saifullah Muhammad and John Packer.
