Help would be limited to extended family members of Canadians and those with Canadian residency.

The GazaPassage Pledge is part of the organization’s Phase II plan it announced on October 27. Six days later, the UAE accepted the pledge in allowing 1000 families of injured children to leave Gaza. Australia too has pledged to help non-combatants leave Gaza since.

GazaPassage is working to ensure the UAEAustralia, Canada, and other nations and organizations around the world help non-combatants leave Gaza for humanitarian purposes.

Canadians have called for the government to take the same humanitarian pledge Australia has taken for extended family members of its residents.

GazaPassage formally published its pledge on December 3 for broad distribution. It is republished below.
