I began working with MCRS in 2016. It is an incredible privilege to work with a team so committed to providing welcome and much needed assistance to people seeking refuge in Canada.
I am humbled by the people who come to us from over 30 different countries, hoping to build new lives here, safe at last from the violence and threat to life and well-being they and their families faced.
I am deeply thankful for the many people who support the work of MCRS. We could not do what we do without you!
