Mission and Objectives

Mission Statement

IRCOM strives to empower newcomer families to integrate into the wider community through affordable transitional housing, programs, and services.

IRCOM Objectives

Housing: To provide safe and affordable transitional housing to low-income newcomer families in their 1st three years of living in Canada. To ultimately provide newcomer families with a comfortable and nurturing environment that empowers both parents and children to smoothly adapt to their new community.

Programming: To connect people with quality and accessible programs that support participants and community members to gain the tools they need to integrate and settle into Winnipeg life. Our programs will consistently aim to fill gaps and build partnerships with others working in the community and settlement sectors.

Be agents of change: Help to facilitate systematic change by engaging the public and policy makers to better understand newcomer issues, while highlighting the stories and voices of newcomers with the goal of achieving wider societal change.

Build Community: Create and support a community within and beyond IRCOM where individuals feel safe, loved, cared for, welcome, supported, respected and included.

Develop as ‘learning’ organization: To be a ‘learning organization’ that is always developing, adapting and growing, as we work to meet the changing needs of our staff, stakeholders and community members.
