I wondered about this.

"No. Refugees do not get more financial help from the federal government than Canadian pensioners do. A widely circulated email makes this false claim. The email mistakenly includes the one-time start-up payment as part of the monthly payment."

It's the same startup fund that anyone can get when they apply for OW, a need for this start up needs to be established. It's what I saw on Snopes anyways:

I should amend my previous statement... most will probably get some, but most will not get the full amount.

The snopes page points out that this was originally a misunderstanding over a Canadian news article from the Toronto star. I just know from personal experience that this startup is not only not guaranteed, but also near impossible to get the full amount.

CBC says they get $1,350 per month for a family. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/syria-refugees-canada-susan-ormiston-1.3311786?__vfz=profile_comment%3D6802400001830#vf-3254100001827 . Vacant low income housing for 25000 in two months will be another hard part.
