In 2020, COVID-19 changed everything for refugee claimants! In 2021, uncertain futures remain!

Families are separated by thousands of kilometers with no idea when, or if, they will see each other again!

We hope that this year will be a year for new beginnings especially for those who must rebuild everything.

Our work is more critical than ever. THANK YOU for supporting us!

There is one exciting change that we are able to move forward with. On January 16, 2021 our Board announced that this year we would embrace a new name and a new brand: COMPASS Refugee Centre. We are now working on the transition. During this time, be assured that your donations will continue to go toward our vision:

“that every person coming to Canada seeking refuge has unhindered access to justice and opportunity to thrive in welcoming communities.”

Their story and your story WILL continue to come together at COMPASS!

Give a one-time gift and encourage someone today!

Become a monthly donor and change a life forever!

Every dollar given is used to meet needs with excellence, good stewardship, and incredible value.
