Refugee families are already here in Mission. They arrived with one form of a number of sponsorship types, be it government, blended (government-private) or private sponsorship (sometimes referred to as citizen sponsorship), and the Mission volunteer effort behind that support has been amazing. If you are a faith group, a group of five people or an organization looking to bring a refugee family to Mission, talk to our new-to-Canada team here at Mission Community Services Society. Pick up the phone and ask for one of our settlement workers. Information line is 604-826-3634. Our team is known for putting together community forums related to refugee pre-arrival and the integration experience in Mission. We work with various community groups to make the refugee experience for the newcomer families the best it can be.
