Sponsoring refugees, making a donation to support the resettlement program or volunteering time are all ways you can support refugees in our city.
Full Project Summary
Since 1979 MCC has helped refugees who have no prospect of returning home to start a new life in Canada through our sponsorship program.
Sponsorship is a one year commitment. The sponsoring group helps the refugee family with practical things like housing, finances, and grocery shopping, as well as offering friendship and emotional support.
While the legal sponsorship lasts a year, the relationships that are formed are often transforming and everlasting. Throughout the stages of the sponsorship process, MCC provides the sponsors with training opportunities and support.
Sponsors can be a church congregation, a community group, or collection of people who have the time and resources to help.
