Apollinaire Ndayizeye

Burundi Survivor

Apollinaire Ndayizeye was doubly at risk during the 1993 Burundi genocide, being both a Tutsi and a high-ranking government official. Seventy members of his family died during the genocide. In 1994 he and two of his children left Burundi to seek refuge in Canada; the following year, his wife and third child were able to join them. Ndayizeye works for the Department of Canadian Heritage, and is a former executive director of the French Canadian Association of Ontario London-Sarnia.
