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 works with refugees and displaced people in many forgotten places around the world, including Kenya, Sudan, Colombia, Jordan and Iraq. The main reason people become refugees is due to conflict, sometimes a conflict between countries, sometimes a conflict between factions within a country.
MCC BC also assists refugees by working with churches to sponsor refugees to come to Canada, and through our refugee office in Vancouver that assists refugee claimants (asylum seekers already in Canada).
