Refugee and Immigration Project
Since 2005, MCC Toronto volunteers have been hosting monthly LGBT support group meetings with hundreds having attended. Approximately 80-90% have been successfully accepted into Canada. The Refugee and Immigration Project will work in cooperation and collaboration with over 32 other organizations and agencies to achieve its purpose and objectives.
This ministry, started by a group of volunteers, began with a peer support group assisting inland refugee claimants integrate into the LGBT community in Toronto. Inland claimants are those who come to Canada and make a claim at an Immigration office in Canada seeking Canada’s protection as they are in fear of persecution in their home country. They will be scheduled to have a hearing at Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board for that purpose. Since that time we have helped over 700 refugee claimants on their spiritual path by demonstrating to them that they are loved and are a valued member of society just the way they were created.
