The relatives of the three-year-old boy who drowned off the coast of Turkey, triggering an international outcry about the migrant crisis, have arrived in Canada as refugees.

Alan Kurdi's uncle Mohammed Kurdi, his wife and five children landed in Vancouver where they had an emotional reunion with Alan's aunt Tima.

The family is just a few of the tens of thousands of people that the Canadian government has promised to resettle.
