FCJ Refugee Centre serves refugees and others at risk due to their immigration status, and welcomes anyone asking for advice, counsel and support regarding these issues. We address systemic issues that newly arrived refugee claimants face in Canada including lack of resources, marginalization, and discrimination. Countless people are touched by our services. Some become residents at one of the houses, and use our refugee settlement services, while some only use the Centre’s refugee protection services. For all these people we advocate in any way necessary: assistance with paperwork, translation and interpretation, accompaniment, referral to immigration lawyers connected to our organization, orientation to local social services, skills development, and counselling to support a healthy and positive start to life in Canada. Still others are guided and informed by our popular education programme, which encompasses training, seminars, workshops, and publications.
