The family was welcomed by family and PVNC staff at Pearson International Airport and taken to Casa Maria Refugee Homes housing in Peterborough.

“It’s like this was all a bad dream and we’re just waking up now," says Syrian father Ammar Aidak as he walked through his new home in Peterborough's East City with his family.
