Our Work with Refugees


Imagine arriving at the Vancouver International Airport with nothing but the shirt on your back.

You may have lived years in one of the world’s refugee camps after fleeing your homeland due to persecution, violence or war. You may be alone or with your family, unable to communicate in English and feeling lost.

This is where ISSofBC steps in. Staff offer a safe and welcoming place to stay at the ISSofBC  Welcome Centre and provide clients with all the information and settlement services they may need as a new refugee in Canada.
