MCC’s Refugee and Newcomers Assistance Program seeks to share God’s love with refugees and newcomers in the areas of sponsorship, family reunification, settlement, and integration into Canadian society.

Refugee and Newcomer's Sponsorship

MCC has a long and rich history of responding to the needs of refugees. We were one of the first organizations to become a Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) with the federal government in 1979. Today, there are over 70.8 million people displaced worldwide. Around the world, people become refugees when they are forced to flee their homes due to conflict or violence.

MCC’s Refugee and Newcomers Assistance Program seeks to share God’s love with refugees and newcomers in the areas of sponsorship, family reunification, settlement, and integration into Canadian society.

MCC BC works to:

  • Promote refugee sponsorship and support churches through the process 
  • Inform Canadians about refugee policies and advocate for fair legislation
  • Provide resettled refugees support and help with settlement into BC
