Refugees continue to seek spaces of safety in many places and for many reasons. MCC has been integrally involved in providing emergency assistance to thousands of internally displaced families and refugees in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, Asia and Eastern Europe, as
well as facilitating the sponsorship of their resettlement in Canada.
This year MCC marks the 40th anniversary of refugee sponsorship. MCC BC also supports Refugee Claimants navigate the refugee claim process.
