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 Newcomers Sponsorship

MCC works with refugees and displaced people in many forgotten places around the world. 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).

Refugee Claimant Assistance Program

With nowhere left to turn, MCC stands in the gap, assisting individuals in appealing the initial decision for their claim. We help individuals navigate the legal processes, giving them tools to be able to represent themselves and tell their unique story.
