Help immigrants and refugees learn, share and grow in British Columbia.
Read more about a variety of ways you can directly contribute to helping immigrants and refugees build new lives in Metro Vancouver.
Be at the centre of life changing opportunities for vulnerable immigrant and refugee children, youth and families by donating directly to ISSofBC programs that are not funded through government sources. Examples include MYCircle - a leadership program for youth, Reaching for Success - an afterschool program for multi-barriered children, TechStart - an intenstive IT training program for newcomers, and First Language Trauma Services - a holistic approach to helping refugees and immigrants.
Refugees and immigrants now have help from a regional services hub in Vancouver —a one-stop housing and support centre. With your donation you can assist those most in need with building a brighter future in Canada. Donations directly support 18 temporary and long-term housing units, primary health care unit, multilingual trauma support and treatment centre, youth drop-in and resource space, classrooms for English language learners, Preschool and Childcare centres, and community meeting spaces.
Help highly-motivated immigrant and refugee participants with much needed transportation support to attend a four-month code bootcamp, occupational language and soft skills training through TechStart. This project provides coding skills training and placement addressing well-documented skills gap in the tech sector. Transportation supports have been identified as major barriers by the participants.
Help welcome refugees to British Columbia by donating to our gift card campaign. This is a practical way to make a difference either as an individual, part of a school project, book club or faith community. With your generous support, we can provide refugees with basic necessities to assist them as they start to rebuild their lives in Canada.
