These are unprecedented times for IRCOM. We have shifted our service delivery model to continue to serve vulnerable refugee families during COVID-19. This includes a mix of remote and limited in-person programs and services.
In compliance with all public health guidelines, IRCOM continues to offer remote programs and services for vulnerable clients.
IRCOM’s offices will remain closed to the public, and all programs and services are virtual until further notice. We continue to follow all public health protocols including physical distancing, wearing masks, hand washing, and minimizing all direct contact.

New Service Launch
IRCOM has launched a new service in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Outreach Information Services
For IRCOM tenants and registered IRCOM participants in the community.
Modified Needs Assessment are conducted by phone by our Interpreters and First Language Team. The team ensures that IRCOM tenants and participants are aware of COVID-19 information and updates, and they ask a series of questions about food security, income security, knowledge of new benefits and resources, and children’s needs and wellbeing. If necessary, tenants and participants are referred to IRCOM’s specialized services (e.g., case management, high-needs youth supports, access to benefits, crisis intervention) or to other community resources.
