For Organizations

Organizations and individuals connect with MAP for a variety of great reasons related to refugee claimants – whether they’re looking to share information with others, attend meetings, ask questions or raise an issue. And we’re really happy that they do.

Thanks to all these contributions and questions, we’re able to be a great resource and information forum for people working with or supporting refugee claimants in British Columbia. We’re also able to collaborate on key issues like housing to solve issues and make the process of integrating into Canada simpler and smoother for refugee claimants.

So if you’d like to join MAP to receive information or attend meetings, we’d love to hear from you. If you’re interested in joining MAP please click here.

From Humanitarian to Human – Changing the Way We Welcome Refugee Claimants  is a community-based research project led by the guiding question: “What would a values-based, human-centered, and transformational welcome for and with people seeking refuge and protection in Canada look like?” 

Nine actionable recommendations offer a clear path forward for refugee claimants and Canadians.

This Kinbrace-initiated qualitative research was guided by a diverse research steering committee, and funded by a Vancouver Foundation Systems Change grant and the Houssian Foundation. Research and report were completed by Alexandra Dawley Consulting.
