  • Manitoba’s Response to the Syrian Crisis
    December 16, 2015

    There have been many questions lately about how Manitoba will respond to the incoming refugees from Syria. IRCOM is not directly involved in the coordination of response, though we support the efforts in every way we can and we expect to see many of the new arrivals in our housing and our programs.

    IRCOM’s unique model provides affordable housing and holistic settlement, social, educational, recreational and mental health supports for newcomers to Canada. If you would like to volunteer or donate funds to support IRCOM, please see our Volunteer Program or click on the donate button to the right.

    To support Syrian newcomers:

    If you would like to volunteer, donate goods, or offer an apartment for rent to help support the Syrian refugees, please call the Syrian Refugee Support Call Centre, being operated by the Red Cross, at 1-888-662-3211.

    If you are a landlord or someone who wants to offer rental or interim housing, you can email refugeehousing@gov.mb.ca. They are setting up an inventory.

    If you would like more information regarding the federal government’s plan for bringing in an additional 25,000 refugees, please visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s website.

    If you would like more information on how Canada’s settlement sector views and is responding to the incoming Syrian refugees, please read this press release that was issued on December 6.

    If you would like more information regarding how Manitoba’s provincial government is preparing to resettle the Syrian refugees, please see the website detailing the province’s co-ordinated action plan.

    If you would simply like more information regarding the people coming from Syria, you can find some context in this resource developed by CMAS, or check out the BBC timeline for the country of Syria.
