Show Synopsis

Bridging Borders is an emotional, eye-opening and inspirational documentary series that goes beyond the international headlines to showcase the incredible stories of everyday Canadians who band together to sponsor refugee families from overseas, then help them adjust to a new life in Canada. Each episode tells a unique heart-wrenching yet up-lifting story. For the Canadians wanting to make a difference, it’s an anxious journey of raising money, deciding to accept a family, renting and furnishing a new home for them, then anxiously awaiting complete strangers at the airport. For the arriving refugees, that airport is both the end of a difficult journey, but also the start of a new beginning filled with culture shock and anxiety, but also relief and the promise of a safe new life.
