The Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba Inc. (IRCOM) is a non-profit organization that operates two transitional housing complexes in downtown Winnipeg; IRCOM Ellen and IRCOM Isabel. IRCOM offers secure, affordable and clean apartments to newcomer families for up to 3 years after their arrival.
It began with a building – a 67-suite apartment block on the western edge of Winnipeg’s Exchange District, created to house a wave of boat people and refugees from Southeast Asia.
IRCOM House opened with a rush of excitement and high expectations, struggled through years of under-funding, and then underwent a re-birth. In that process, a unique and potent model for assisting newcomers has emerged – one that offers inspiration to a province which has staked its future prosperity on its ability to successfully integrate newcomers into its mosaic.
