. Canada looks to relocate Afghan interpreters, staff amid U.S. drawdown « JO LEE MAGAZINE

Reuters – Canada is planning to take in hundreds of vulnerable Afghan interpreters, embassy staff and their families as the United States draws down its military presence in Afghanistan after two decades, a government source said on Wednesday. There are about 45 embassy staffers and their families, for a total of about 235 people, and at least 40 interpreters and their family members, the source said.

Canada’s combat mission in Afghanistan ended a decade ago, after which the country resettled about 800 Afghans who had worked for the country as interpreters or in other roles.
