Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has met his little namesake, a baby Justin-Trudeau, born to Syrian refugees, Afraa and Mohammed Bilan this week at the Calgary Stampede.

The couple decided to name their newborn son after the PM as a token of gratitude for welcoming Syrian refugees into Canada.

According to Global News, little Trudeau was happily snoozing away as the Prime Minister held him for the first time, while his personal photographer, Adam Scotti, snapped the close-up. 

One of Trudeau's first moves after winning the Canadian Federal Elections in 2015, was to bring Syrian refugees to safety by allowing them to enter Canada. 

Since then, approximately 40,081 refugees have been resettled in the country, half of whom were government assisted. 

The Prime Minister welcomed the first group of arrivals himself at Toronto Pearson Airport in December of 2015.  

A year later, he was reunited with some of the families he helped welcome. 

Little J-T Bilan is not the only baby named after the Canadian PM. According to Huffpost Canada, it has become a trend, as six other known Syrian refugee families have named their newborns after the PM, one of whom is a girl. 

Ahmed Doso, another Syrian refugee now in Canada, named his fifth son - first born in Canada - after the Prime Minister.

In an interview with CBC News, Doso explained, "It's true the name Justin is Western and we are Eastern and Arabs, but out of my admiration of Trudeau, I had no problem to name my son Justin — because I like this person. For me he is wonderful and compassionate, I hope all leaders whether Easterners or Westerners would be like him."

The Canadian government is not the only entity taking on the endeavor of settling refugees in Canada. 

Across the nation, more than 350 communities have opened up their hearts and towns to Syrians fleeing the war. 

Canadian businessman, Jim Estill, put in $1.5 million of his own money to sponsor 58 families in Canada - about 200 individuals. 

He started a community-wide effort to settle them in his town, Guelph. Estill is not alone, he was joined by many from within his community, both average citizens as well as organizations. 

The refugees were provided with food, shelter, and the kind of support that would help them integrate. Some of the refugees were eventually employed in Estill's company and given English language courses.
