Welcoming Refugees Home

A grassroots team of volunteers providing meaningful, low-barrier settlement support to refugees navigating new lives in Canada.

Our Impact

Since August 2021, Canadian Connections volunteers have:

  • Raised $100K in private funds and in-kind gifts.
  • Helped 140 families (900+ men, women and children) with new and gently used clothing; access to urgent medical attention; applications for government documents and services; navigation of local banking, school, and public transport systems.
  • Aided refugees via our Move Program. Financial gifts are used to purchase new mattresses and bed linens, stock pantries, rent moving trucks, and secure storage for donated items.
  • Advocated for the rights of the most vulnerable to be treated with dignity and respect.


We are currently raising funds to help families get settled in their new homes. In addition to buying mattresses and bed linens (things that should not be used), donations go towards stocking pantries, renting moving trucks and securing storage for donated items.


Many thanks to the growing list of businesses and organizations that have lent their support!
