Australia: The Australian government is being urged to use the current hiatus in international migration, due to COVID-19, to reshape its resettlement programs by introducing a Canadian-style community refugee sponsorship scheme.More than 35,000 people have also signed a petition calling on the government to implement a sponsorship program similar to one in Canada, which has welcomed more than 325,000 refugees in the past 40 years.
