The lawyer for six Canadian women and 13 children being held in Syrian camps says Ottawa has agreed to help bring them home.

The Canadians are among many foreign nationals in Syrian camps run by Kurdish forces that reclaimed the region from extremists.

Family members of the Canadians have been arguing in Federal Court that the government must repatriate them, saying that refusing to do so violates the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

But the case of four men is still before the court.
