Trudeau's message to refugees on Saturday came a day after US President Donald Trump signed an executive order putting a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the US and temporarily barring travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries, Xinhua news agency reported.

"To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada," Trudeau tweeted.
