For Refugee Claimants

Important: Multi-Agency Partnership (MAP) does not provide services directly to refugee claimants. In addition, MAP does not sponsor refugees or advocate on specific cases.

If you are seeking information on claiming refugee status in Canada, you should visit these websites:

If you’d like to download Preparation Guides or register for a READY Tour, you can do that here:

If you are in the process of claiming refugee status and are currently in BC, then our MAP members will be able to help you in your community. You can find the closest agency to you here:
